This recipe for chocolate zucchini bread isn’t my own, but it is so good that I had to share it with you! I made it for the second time last week and I can’t get enough of it. It is so soft and gooey and with every bite you taste chocolate! It is a delicious healthier snack. It is very much like banana bread but then with some added zucchini. I found out that adding zucchini makes bakes perfectly gooey. A while ago I made zucchini carrot muffins and they were the same, so soft! I love baking with zucchini!
If you prefer a little less chocolate in your zucchini bread, you can leave the chocolate chips out or add a bit less. You can also replace them by nuts or seeds.
