Chocolate Zucchini Bread/Muffins

Prep Notes

This recipe is courtesy of my sister Maria, a wonderful REAL food baker! 

This Chocolate Zucchini Loaf is an amazing way to satisfy that sweet tooth, but also keep to your well-balanced food lifestyle. Zucchini is a great baking ingredient because it adds moisture to your recipes and it’s a vegetable to boot! This loaf is totally guilt-free, but so yummy, leaving you question how there possibly could be vegetables in there! So, here it is!

Recipe adapted from HERE.
