I woke up the other day seriously wanting some chocolate zucchini bread. Who wakes up craving chocolate zucchini bread? This girl 🙂 I think I must have seen a picture of zucchini bread on Instagram or something and my subconscious was stewing on it which evolved into CHOCOLATE zucchini bread.
I really like to make healthier versions of food, so I was determined to make a yummy healthy version. I actually made a whole batch of a not-so-yummy version that ended up straight in the trash but… this version turned out just as I had imagined! Made me a happy girl!
