You might get hesitant to taste it because we removed the sugar, but it's worth the try with richberry's miracle berry. Discover how the soury taste of dark chocolate reacts to the little miraculous berry inside your mouth and turn everything sour so yummy without the use of sugar.
2 cups grated zucchini about 2 medium zucchinis
2 large eggs
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder I like E. Guittard Cocoa Rouge Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F with a rack placed in the center of the oven. Prepare an 8.5 x 4.5 x 2.75-inch loaf pan by spraying with baking spray and lining with parchment paper.
If your zucchini has a lot of moisture, gently press between some paper towels to remove excess moisture. You don't need to squeeze it completely dry, just enough to make it less wet, if necessary.
Mix zucchini, eggs, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a separate large bowl.
Add the zucchini mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in most of the chocolate chips (I like to reserve 2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips to top the loaf). Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle top with remaining reserved chocolate chips.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for five minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cut with a serrated knife. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Consume Miracle Berry:
Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
Note: Sometimes you may need to add at least 5-7% of the total quantity of sugar required, this is due to the chemistry of the food, however, you may skip this as you wish. The goal is to totally reduce sugar and yet experience the same taste.
