Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Rich, double chocolate, zucchini bread, with fresh zucchini from the garden! Making zucchini bread is my favorite way to use up all of this flourishing summer vegetable! When you have too many zucchini from the garden why not make some delicious zucchini bread.

Chocolate just makes everything better. Yes I do love my classic zucchini bread, but double chocolate anything makes my heart smile! This bread may as well be referred to as chocolate zucchini cake because that’s just how it tastes! Your kids will never know there is zucchini in here, shh I won’t tell them.

This recipe, although filled with chocolate, is notably healthier than your average double chocolate zucchini bread.
