This makes a not-too-sweet quickbread that is a perfect snack with a cup of coffee or tea. Also nice for breakfast with a dab of butter.

Very enjoyable! You could definately smell the chocolate as it baked - but was not as sweet as a cake. The zucchinni taste was mild. I believe this was healthy as well as tasty. Thanks for a good bread.
