While thinking of new chocolate concepts the other day, it occurred to me that I’ve only done 1-2 chocolate breads. (gasps). I personally love breads as they are quick and easy and just like a blank canvas! (my fave).
You can throw in whatever you like, chocolate, fruit, nuts, and cater to your tastebuds and the season. You just can’t go wrong.
The only thing that can go wrong, is failing to create balance. The bread doesn’t cook through and you’re just left with a brick or it’s just too fluffy. This one is perfection! I love a slightly dense bread as it holds together better, and is a little sturdier!!
What’s fab about this bread, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, fun, looks like a zebra, packs my favorite secret ingredient that boosts the chocolate flavor (coffee), perf for any season, perf for a quick and easy dessert, has rich chocolate ganache, moist but cooked all the way through, and is a chocolate lovers dream!
If you love all things chocolate, you’re going to love this vegan Triple Chocolate Zebra Bread!!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease well the bottom and sides of a 9×5″ loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, coffee grounds, and salt. combine mashed bananas (make sure to remove nearly all clumps), almond milk (room temp), coconut oil, oconut sugar or maple syrup. If the oil begins to solidify due to the cold almond milk, simply pop in the microwave for a minute.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and combine just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour both the batter into the greased pan and bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Combine the powder sugar and almond milk to create the white icing. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute, removing and combining every 15 seconds until fully melted. Pour the chocolate ganache over the top.
While still wet drizzle the white icing in rows. Run a skewer, knife or chopstick down the middle gliding just on the top to create the fun lines. Allow to set, slice and enjoy!
