Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My preschooler turns up his nose like a haughty little prince when I present him with vegetables. Especially green ones. So, you can only imagine to my delight when he gobbled up zucchini, a super green veggie, via a piece of chocolate zucchini bread.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I get that there is a fair amount of sugar and cocoa in this recipe. It’s most definitely a pastry. But still, in the back of my mind I’m convinced that the good of the zucchini outweighs the chocolate 🙂

This delightful loaf will make you toss your former zucchini bread recipe. The chocolate takes it up one amazing notch making it a spectacular way to use up any excess zucchini you’ve got laying around!

  4. Divide between loaf pans and bake for 60 minutes.

Enjoy!
