It has the right amount of chocolate flavor and the zucchini makes it moist and delicious!

And with extra chocolate chips scattered throughout the bread, this breakfast tastes more like dessert!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

From Cooking Light July 2004

 

Ingredients

    3/4 cup sugar

    3 tablespoons vegetable oil

    2 large eggs

    1 cup applesauce

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

    1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1 1/2 cups finely shredded zucchini (about 1 medium)

    1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

    Cooking spray

      Preparation

      Preheat oven to 350°.

      Place first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at low speed until well blended. Stir in applesauce.

      Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 4 ingredients (through salt), stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture, beating just until moist. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Spoon batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack, and remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
