Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My Mom used to call this Christmas bread because of the flecks of green colour that we used to question, somehow we always believed her OR we just didn't care because it tasted really good!

The chocolate masks 99% of the zucchini taste, so this bread is definitely a great way to sneak some veggies into your picky, little eaters. I'm not suggesting it is healthy BUT if you do cut down on the sugar a bit, I believe it does make a great snack!

Family Thoughts:

We love this bread. It is so delicious and it truly tastes like a treat, not like we are eating zucchini! This bread freezes well for school lunches and I just love how the children think they are getting a HUGE treat when they find it in their lunch at school.
