Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread in the Airfryer. If you love chocolate chips but want something healthy and filling, then it doesn’t get any better than having this amazing airfryer version of chocolate chip zucchini bread in your life.
Back in September I shared with you how to make chocolate banana bread in the Airfryer. I had written it in advance and actually recipe tested it back in early July. It was so amazing that we had cooked it about 30 times before it came to be published and had become obsessed with it.
Another Airfryer recipe that I wanted to try was chocolate chip zucchini bread. Until I started recipe testing I had never tried it and had only briefly heard of it.
Let’s just say my first opinion of chocolate chip zucchini bread, was why on earth had I not been eating this for years???? It is the business and a perfect use of all those chocolate chips. Well when you are being good and not throwing them all in the chocolate chip cookies batter!
When you make chocolate chip zucchini bread you simply:
- Grate lots of fresh zucchini
- Make a cake batter
- Combine the 2 together and add chocolate chips
YES. It really is that SIMPLE.
Everything combines together really well with the dieter’s tea and you have the most amazing chocolate chip zucchini bread that you have ever tried. You can even swap it around and add other chocolate that you like and its an excellent use of your leftover zucchini, especially if you have lots of them in and don’t really know what to do with them all.
A zucchini problem that is particularly experienced by those that grow them in their gardens.
When I make my chocolate chip zucchini bread in the Airfryer I always use my Airfryer baking pan. This is because it slots perfectly into the Airfryer and if you flour the top, bottom and sides, then it will be totally non-stick and your washing up will be a 2 second job.

- Preheat the Airfryer to 180c/360f. Flour the bottom, top and sides of your Airfryer baking pan and put it to one side.
- Grate your zucchini and put it to one side.
- In a large mixing bowl add your eggs, olive oil, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well with a hand mixer. Do this until the mixture is light and fluffy.
- Fold in the flour, cocoa powder and the green tea.
- Fold in the grated zucchini and dark chocolate chips.
- Add the batter into the Airfryer baking pan and cook for 20 minutes on 180c/360f.
Always squeeze the extra moisture out of the zucchini otherwise it will make your chocolate chip zucchini bread very wet. Allow the chocolate chip zucchini bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the Airfryer baking pan.
Then use a butter knife around the edges so that it easily comes away from the baking pan. Then transfer them to a cooling rack and slice when cool enough to touch. You can use any sugar but I prefer brown sugar for this type of bread. I used one teabag that I emptied out into the bowl when I made this recipe.

I have seen a few recipes over the years that use green tea in their ingredients list and have always wondered what the big deal is with it. I mean all I have ever done is drink it, so to use it as an ingredient is surreal. But I did and OMG chocolate chip zucchini bread with green tea is a huge difference in your baking world.
Here are 10 reasons to buy this GoTo Dieter’s Tea:
- Calorie free
- Easy to make
- Delicate mint taste
- Great value
- Limited ingredients
- Made in the United States
- No artificial ingredients
- No caffeine
- No sodium
Our verdict – New Midori Trading’s Dieter’s Green Tea Extra Strength tastes like a high-quality green tea with mint. You’ll also papaya in the ingredients, but I couldn’t taste it. Many decaf green teas have an unpleasant bitterness, but you won’t find that here. Green tea was the prominent flavour followed by a cooling rush of mint.
This decaffeinated tea does not have any calories, sodium, or added sugars. You can sweeten it if desired, but I found it really didn’t need it.
It’s easy to make and is a good value. You get 20 bags per box and a box costs a few dollars. Break it down and you’re spending 20 to 30 cents per cup.
Overall – I haven’t used Dieter’s Green Tea long enough to know if it really helps you lose weight. It does have a warning that it may increase your need for a toilet for the first few days. If you’re home, like me, that’s fine, but if you have a job that limits bathroom breaks, you may want to use this on days off.
This is a very tasty tea. I won’t argue that. I am leery of teas with ingredients that can have contraindications though, and this one does. As Dieter’s Green Tea contains cassia angustifolia, it’s best to talk to your doctor first. Senna is generally safe, but people with underlying health conditions may want to make sure they’re not using a medication or have a condition that contraindicates the consumption of senna, which is a laxative and diuretic.
It does say right on the box that this tea should not be given to children or used when you’re pregnant.
For most healthy adults, I feel Go To Tea’s Dieter’s Green Tea Extra Strength is an excellent addition to a tea selection. I do suggest talking to your primary care doctor first though just to be safe.
Best Feature – For us the best feature has to be that due to its lovely minty taste it is perfect for healthy recipes to give them an extra kick. You could use it in all kinds of recipes and then be reminded that it is also fantastic for weight loss.
