Sweet and Savory Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Did someone say chocolate zucchini bread? Yes, please!

My neighbor has been so gracious as to bring me freshly grown zucchini’s from her family’s garden a couple of times this month. These are the BIG zucchini’s, not your usual grocery store sized ones. I’ve already made a zucchini bread with lemon glaze, so I wanted to try something different. I let Charli help me mix a lot of the ingredients and we had a great time cooking together! Total prep time was about 15 minutes.

Enjoy this Sweet and Savory Chocolate Zucchini Bread:

Ingredients-

  • 1/2 cup of melted butter (plus more for coating the loaf pan)
