READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Top Review by Lisanne

I've wanted to make this bread for awhile. Not because it sounds great, because let's face it. Chocolate and Zucchini. No, just no. But I love zucchini bread and I have been so curious! I had to sub 1/2 cup applesauce for the oil because although we have avocado oil, olive oil, sesame oil... too many oils to mention, I ran out of vegetable oil! Avocado oil might have been okay but I didn't want to risk it. Chocolate and avocado sounds worse than zucchini... anyhoo So after I dumped in the 1/2 cup of cocoa I made a sad face like this :( and tossed in an extra 2 tablespoons. That cup of cocoa looked lonely. Oh goodness the batter smelled delicious. Baked it for an hour, but I think that was just a smidge too long for me. Next time I'll take it out a few min. earlier.

This bread... makes an awesome peanut butter sandwich. haha! My kids really liked it, even though my son claims he does not like chocolate. I'm glad I tried it!
