With less sugar and fat than most quick breads, this decadent tasting chocolate loaf is perfect for a special weekend breakfast served with fresh berries, or as a dessert with a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream.
For even more chocolate flavor, add ¼ cup chocolate chips to the top of the bread before baking!
You can create the same delicious bread in a gluten- and dairy-free version with the easy dairy-free substitutions listed in the ingredients below. The results will be equally delicious!
Cool the bread before slicing. If you have leftovers, wrap slices in wax paper, then in aluminum foil (or store in a zip top baggie) and freeze up to 1 month.
When you need a chocolate treat, remove slices from the freezer and thaw at room temperature or microwave a few seconds to thaw.
