1/2 cup melted unsalted butter or vegetable oil, plus more melted butter, for the pan
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon grated lemon or orange zest, optional
1 cup shredded zucchini, excess moisture squeezed out
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of fine salt
For the quick bread: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly brush one 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan or three 6-by-3-by-2-inch mini loaf pans with melted butter and set aside.
Combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add the hazelnuts, chocolate chips and oats and toss together. Set aside.
Whisk together the melted butter, yogurt, vanilla extract, eggs and grated zest if using in a small bowl. Stir in the shredded zucchini. Fold this mixture into the flour mixture until just incorporated.
Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan(s). Tap the bottom on a hard surface a few times and smooth the top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes for the regular loaf and 35 to 40 minutes for the minis. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes, then turn the bread out and let cool completely on the rack.
For the chocolate glaze: Whisk together the confectioners' sugar, cocoa, milk, vanilla extract and salt in a small bowl.
Pour the glaze over the bread and allow to set at room temperature, 15 to 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.) Try not to use dark coated baking pans; the quick bread could get too dark. Most quick breads taste better if left to sit overnight.
