Easy Chocolate Zucchini Bread

We’ve reached the time of Summer when all those spring gardens are blooming and it’s time to reap the fruits of our labor! (Or, if you’re like me, you’re reaping the fruit of your neighbor’s garden as they share their bounty with the neighborhood.)  If you happen to be experiencing an abundance of zucchini, I have the perfect Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread recipe for you! 

This isn’t your typical zucchini bread! It is studded with chocolate chips, zucchini and is nothing like you’ve ever tasted.  The zucchini lends such moistness to the bread, and the chocolate flavor will ensure that these loaves won’t last long at your house! This bread is the perfect way to use up your summer squash!

This recipe makes two standard sized loaves. I typically make one standard loaf and then use the rest of the batter to make mini loaves to share with friends or to stash in my freezer for a later date.
