Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Recipe - Family Fresh Meals

Anyone who has ever had a vegetable garden knows about the problem of Too Many Zucchini.

When the first tender little baby zucchini start showing up in July, it’s great. But as the summer goes on and the zucchini just keep coming, you start to get sick of them. You’re eating them every night, in every conceivable way – grilled, stuffed, sautéed – and you just can’t keep up. There’s even an unofficial holiday on August 8 called “National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day” for people who can’t cope with the flood of squash.

Fortunately, there’s also a much tastier solution: zucchini bread.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread - Step 9

Grating up zucchini and baking it into a moist, sweet bread is an easy way to make it disappear like magic. Suddenly, it’s not a burdensome vegetable – it’s a delicious treat that family and friends will gobble right up and ask for more. And if you throw some chocolate chips in there, you just might see it vanish the minute you get it out of the oven.

In fact, here’s a fun trick: try leaving your windows open while you bake this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. Instead of having to sneak zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch, you’ll have them sneaking over to your place to beg for a slice.

    As an experienced cook, I was able to figure it out, but a novice might be confused by the omission of flour as one of the dry ingredients to be mixed together in step #3. Otherwise, it sounds like a really yummy recipe and I plan on giving it a try.
