Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double-Chocolate Zucchini Bread

If you planted zucchini or yellow squash this year, it may be that you’re about zucchini-ed out.  I am–or was.  I’ve already pulled up my squash plant.  It was so prolific, I spent numerous afternoons making my favorite recipes to use it up, and I reached the point where I’d had enough.  The good news is that my freezer is stocked with a shelf full of yummy baked goods that we can enjoy this winter.  No regrets from this girl.

Double-Chocolate Zucchini Bread is one of those yummies.

I’ve made this every summer for I don’t know how many years.  It’s a recipe from our church’s cookbook, and you KNOW those are the best kind of cookbooks!  Everyone shares their tried-and-true recipes because they’re there in black and white, and everyone will see them.  They have to be good!

I made this with yellow squash, not zucchini, and of course, there’s virtually no difference in taste.  This bread is moist, almost like a chocolate cake.  And those mini-chocolate chips give it another little blast of chocolate with every bite.  Coconut gives it extra crunch, and well, you’ll just have to make some to know what I mean.
