Can you leave out the Espresso Powder?

Yes! Espresso powder just enhances the chocolate flavor. It’s a minimal amount, but if you want to avoid any caffeine feel free to omit this ingredient.

Why Apple Sauce?

You won’t taste it at all! Apple sauce is a great ingredient to use to add moisture to a bread without needed to add lots of oil. While there is still oil in here, I like to use apple sauce in combination with it to get the right texture.

How to Store this Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Store this bread in the refrigerator or freezer after it has been cooled. In the refrigerator it will last a couple of days. You can leave it at room temperature for a few hours to take the chill off if desired. It will last up to 1 month in the freezer. Let it sit at room temperature uncovered to defrost.
