This Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread is a dark chocolate lovers dream. And with the low fat and added nutrition from the applesauce and zucchini it is healthy treat as well.
Yes, I admit it. I may have failed to mention to my picky eater son that this bread had zucchini in it. And he devoured it. Sometimes a mom has to do what a mom has to do. But, you are welcome to full disclosure if you so desire.
Chocolate not your thing? How about lemon? I have made this Gluten Free Lemon Zucchini Bread a few times and it disappears just as fast.
