Decadent Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

"Revised from a recipe that had a whole cup of oil in it, this one is lower in fat, yet still moist and delicious, more like chocolate cake than zucchini bread--a serving of vegies and a decadent chocolate escape, all in one! I use Mexican vanilla and Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips for more intense flavor. You can make them in smaller loaves and give them as gifts, or freeze for later."

  1. Absolutely awesome!!! This zucchini bread (cake) is truely decadent. This is not like any other zucchini bread that you'll ever try and I had my doubts because it is on the healthier side. You can never tell that it has whole wheat in there! I used Dannon Light & Fit vanilla yogurt with 0% fat and it turned out great! The only thing is that my 2 loaves of bread were done in 40 minutes at 350 degrees. The bread starting smelling real fragrant, so I checked at 40 minutes and the bread was done. So, glad I did because it was perfect!! THANK YOU Annz Recipez!!
