This bread was way too dry--we were all mightily disappointed! I also didn't particularly like the addition of the almonds; it might have been better with pecans or walnuts. Read More

This bread is wonderfully moist everyone raved about it! Only thing is it didn't taste chocolatey I would suggest doubleing the chocolate added. But it is so good that the chocolate really wasn't missed! Read More

I made this today as muffins and our children loved them. It took a few minutes to grate the zucchini but other than that they were quick and easy to make. Read More

A GREAT recipe!! My 15 month old is in this "phase" where he doesn't want to eat veggies and I try to get them inside him any way I can. He loves chocolate hence he loves this bread! I modified it somewhat to make it lower in fat by substituting half of the olive oil for pureed prunes and put only 3/4 of the sugar required. Read More

Best Chocolate Zucchini bread I've made. I have pledged to make 25 loaves of bread for our church's booth at the local festival so I tried this recipe out on my Ladies Circle first. They all thought it was great as did my family so part of my 25 loves will now be made from this recipe. I'm sure there will be some very happy people out there who are fortunate enough to buy my bread. Read More

Made these as muffins they were wonderful!! It made about 20 muffins total. Few things I did: 1) threw in a cup of carrots instead of chocolate 2) They were ready in about 40 minutes so start watching & smelling early. 3) the sliced almonds were so good in this I would throw in more! Read More

A very nice moist bread. Have thrown out my old recipe for chocolate zucchini bread that my daughter gave me and after I gave her a partial loaf of this she probably will too as she liked it as much as I did and immediately asked for the recipe. Read More

This was okay. I know if I put it in the break room at work and all of it doesn't get eaten that's a problem. It's good if you need to get rid of zucchini in the garden. Wouldn't make it again. Read More
