Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Heaven forbid I make something without chocolate added somewhere in the recipe! ;)  I really do love chocolate a bit too much.  

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Moist and Delicious

Last week I made a Chicken Rice Vegetable Soup recipe {I’ll be sharing that recipe at Cupcakes and Crinoline in a few days}.  One of the ingredients called for was zucchini.  When I went to buy the one little zucchini there was a package of three available in a pack so I went ahead and splurged {think Gucci Veggies} on the three-pack.  After I made the soup I had two zucchinis left so I made a loaf of Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread and a loaf of Harvest Zucchini Bread.  I love when I can stretch out an ingredient and use it in so many different ways.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Full Loaf

 

I love a good loaf of quick bread ~ my family gobbled this up for dessert after dinner the night I made it and then for breakfast the next morning ~ there’s zucchini in it so I think that qualifies it as healthy!

  1. Mary Beth…this looks and sounds delicious. :)
    One thing…3/8 Cup is a measurement that is totally foreign to me. Do you actually have a cup with those measurements or do you measure our 1/4 cup and 1/8 cup for the total? I hope I don’t sound really silly for this question. ;)
    Best wishes for An Extraordinary Day!

    • Hi Diane! I use the 1/8 cup (and I do have a measuring cup with that marking) 3 times. I usually double this recipe so maybe I should have stated that in which case it would be 3/4 cup for 2 loaves (does that make sense???). Thanks so much for stopping by.

      hugs, mb

  2. Love Zucchini Bread! The Chocolate Chips sound like the perfect added touch! I am going to include this in my Fabulous Finds Tomorrow!
