This Chocolate Zucchini Bread was so good! So good that I had a hard time sharing it with the rest of my family! Even my picky eaters liked it!
I admit it, I was a picky eater when I was a child too. I survived mostly off of cereal, salad, pasta and chicken. It wasn't until I got married that I started to broaden my taste buds. Now, I'm in love with summer veggies! You can sneak zucchini into just about anything….the proof is this bread. My kids had no idea there were hidden vegetables in their treat! And one slice with calm that late night sweet tooth!
Make a loaf and Enjoy!
