Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I recently made the most epic Chocolate Zucchini Bread and it’s definitely going on the favorite list. It is the BEST!
I don’t know who invented baking with zucchini, but they deserve a medal. If I could meet them, I would give them a giant hug. Zucchini in baked goods is genius! Baking with zucchini is probably my favorite way to enjoy zucchini because you all know I have a major sweet tooth. BUT you don’t have to feel guilty about eating a sweet treat when zucchini is involved because you are eating a vegetable!

Adapted from :


  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • Number seven : Fold in the chocolate chips.
