Decadent. Delicious. Chocolatey. Moist. And loaded with zucchini? Yep. Though you’ll hardly guess the zucchini is there. For this quick bread it provides a nice moist and tender texture without a ton of fat and then goes away. If you’ve never sampled chocolate zucchini bread I’d defintiely recommend it. If you’re trying to pull a fast one on zucchini haters I’d recommend you peel the zucchini first and finely shred it – then it completely disappears in the finished product. I don’t bother to peel mine and just shred it over a standard box grater. For some extra punch you can add chocolate chips or nuts.
