Preheat oven to 350F, and line a 5X9 loaf pan with parchment paper.
Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Add the wet ingredients except the zucchini to a separate mixing bowl.
Squeeze the zucchini in a nut bag, clean towel or place between paper towels to remove excess water (if you use the paper towel method, you’ll have to allow the zucchini to sit for a couple of hours).
Stir in the zucchini to the wet ingredients, making sure everything is well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, using a spatula combine together until the batter is well incorporated.
Add 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips (optional) to the batter and combine.
Transfer to the prepared pan, add a few more chocolate chips if you wish and bake for 50-55 minutes. Remove from the the oven and allow to cool completely.
