Delicious zucchini bread recipe

The great thing about growing zucchini in your garden is it is a great producer, but at times you can get overwhelmed with the yields but fortunately zucchini bread is a delicious way to take a care of this problem.  Below is my favorite recipe, typically you would swap out the chocolate chips with something like walnuts but have a kiddo with nut allergies and it is always easier to get kids to eat some veggies hidden in bread when you add a little chocolate 🙂

If you own a food processor you can shred the zucchini, switch to the chopper attachment and pulse for 2-3 seconds and remove zucchini into small bowl.  Add wet ingredients and turn on for 30 seconds, add dry ingredients, zucchini, and chocolate chips and run for 5-10 seconds (until well combined) and you are ready to pour into pans and bake to deliciousness.
