Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Stop everything. I have found the best recipe for a chocolate zucchini loaf. I scoured Pinterest and this one by Wyld Flour is by far my favourite. It’s rich, it’s moist, and the best thing: it’s healthy. I couldn’t taste the zucchini at all so it’s safe to say that while typing this out, I already had 2 slices.

One thing I did change is that I used 1/4 cup regular cocoa powder & 1/4 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder. I also only used 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. fd7aae21-cc14-447d-9a2f-0084ffcfff62
