Who’s ready for healthy bread?  No, I’m serious.  This chocolate-chip zucchini bread is only 4 Freestyle points per serving and tastes like it’s a traditional bread.  A wonderful breakfast or dessert option when you are craving something sweet, but healthy.

You can have a slice of bread for breakfast?  Why, yes you can!  

Just because you are on Weight Watchers doesn’t mean you can’t indulge and have a delicious slice of chocolate-chip bread every once in a while.  

I personally love these chocolate chips and think that this bread is divine.  But don’t listen to me.

My husband and kids LOVED this bread.  It’s a great kid friendly recipe if you are needing something new.

He said he couldn’t tell there was zucchini in it and wouldn’t have thought about it if he didn’t see the green bits throughout the bread.  It’s that good – and it’s healthy.

One of the best things about the Weight Watchers program is that you can basically eat anything you want – and one thing I constantly crave is bread.  I can’t get enough of it.

I also can’t give up chocolate chips…and these are the best ones, in my opinion.  They are larger than your average chocolate chip, and are full of flavor…just try them for yourself if you don’t believe me.

Notes

You can substitute olive oil for the avocado oil (a 1:1 ratio) and you can use more all-purpose flour if you don’t have or want to buy almond flour (a 1:1 ratio).  
You can also use pure maple syrup if you don’t want to use sugar-free syrup.  The SmartPoints value may change if you do this.

  1. This looks so good! I really want to try it, but I didn’t see how many servings in the entire loaf so I know how big the slices should be?

  2. Thank you Emelia. This bread was SO good – I didn’t know how it would turn out, but I loved it. You can sub olive oil for avocado oil (it’s a 1;1 ratio). I liked adding the almond flour – it felt healthier to me. HA!
