Lion House Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I stole this recipe from my aunt's Lion House cookbook. The first time I made this, my neighbors came over to visit and I gave them a loaf. Next thing I know, their kids are asking for the recipe! A very thick and yummy bread. I cut my zucchini in small chunks and throw them in the food processor to speed things up.

I love this recipie! The chocolate chips do make a difference. I tend to freeze my zucchini, and just thaw it out when i'm ready to use it. When I do that, I put the water and all in from the little baggy it is in, and it always turns out perfect.

Perhaps it's my fault. I left out the chocolate chips, because I don't like them in chocolate zucchini bread, and it just wasn't chocolatey enough, plus it was pretty dry. I wish I could just find my old recipe--that's why I came to Recipezaar, to try to re-create the old magic!
