2 1/4cups(281 grams) whole wheat flour, white whole wheat or whole spelt flour
1/2cup(113 grams) salted buttermelted
3/4cup(150 grams) brown sugar
2large (50 grams each, out of shell) eggs
3 1/2cupszucchinishredded and squeezed in a clean kitchen towel to remove some of the liquid*
3/4cup(83 grams) walnuts or (127 grams) chocolate chipsif desired
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a loaf pan by lightly greasing or buttering and set aside.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices in a bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl stir together the melted butter and sugar. Add the eggs and beat until each is incorporated. Stir in the zucchini.
Stir in the dry ingredients just until incorporated, adding walnuts or chocolate chips if desired.
Add batter to the prepared loaf pan and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 55-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooling rack when done and cool before slicing.
If you're using older zucchini that's not very wet, this may not be necessary. If it's fresh and juicy, you'll likely need to wring it out a little. If your zucchini is super juicy, wring it out a little more.
