    Chocolate Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

    Yum

    Back and armed with another zucchini snack recipe! This one is a winner! Soft, moist, decadent but without all that guilt. The kids loved it, and the husband loved it. I had a bite of it and loved the texture, that deep cocoa taste, and that perfect hint of sweetness to balance out the bitterness of the cocoa.

    Why just a little bite? To be completely honest, I’m not a big fan of wheat. I suspect that I could be intolerant to it. Hence, my body has never been drawn to food with wheat in it, and the hives that usually occur a few hours after I consume something with wheat in it. 

    But nonetheless, the husband and kids aren’t showing signs of intolerance. Only signs of intolerance when I don’t bake for them. lol! I’d rather bake for them than have them consume store-bought baked products. At least I know what is going into the baked goods. 

    For this recipe, I used organic coconut sugar, greek yogurt, coconut oil, free range eggs, whole wheat pastry flour, and loaded it up with shredded zucchini. Threw in some semi-sweet dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips as a treat. I get some people leaving doubtful comments on fb when I shared my previous recipe. “Zucchini?” Yes, it’s not a new concept. Think carrots in carrot cake, similar idea.
