Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

June 12, 2015
What better way to eat your veggies than to stuff them in a chocolate bread?

One of the best ideas ever. Whoever invented that is a genius.



While making this bread for the first time, my 5 year old ( or as he says my "baking helper")  asked what the green stuff was that we were adding to it.  I informed him that it was zucchini. He tells me that he hates zucchini and will never eat it.  Ever.  It is gross. Got it.  

Honestly, he had never had it before.  That was my fault.  My mom used to make zucchini bread when I was a kid. It was terrible.  Of course, she tried to tell her children it was banana bread.  So, it could of just been that whole zucchini/banana confusion that turned me off from it.  I'm not too sure.  I've just never been much of a zucchini kinda person since then.  Until this bread came along, of course.

Oh, so, my 5 year old?  Yeah, the child who said he would never, ever, eat zucchini, ate this like it was going out of style.  As a matter of fact, he grab an entire handful of the first loaf before it was even cut.  Just ripped into like a bag of chips.  It was nuts.  But, that was OK, it gave me a reason to make it again.




This bread is delicious. Chocolaty goodness and it's packed full of some healthy green stuff.  
A total win-win dessert!
