Notes:

This is the perfect time of year to bake up all the zucchini chocolate chip bread you can!! Zucchini is growing like crazy in my garden which means we will be munching on delicious bread all summer long.

I was able to make two small loafs and a large loaf (because I don’t have two large loaf pans). The small loafs are great to gift to friends and family.

I grated one very large zucchini for this batch. I think I will probably put a little more zucchini in the batter next time.

I also used dark chocolate cocoa powder (because that’s what I had) which turned out great!

Very thankful to the Ochs family for sharing this delicious recipe!!
