Healthy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaves

IMG_0795.jpg

These little loaves are a variation of my carrot zucchini muffins.  They contain a little more zucchini in place of the carrots and have chocolate chips instead of raisins.  The recipe is very versatile and can be made into a larger loaf, mini loaves, or muffins.

The zucchini makes these really moist and provides a ton of nutrients including vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin A, as well as protein, and fiber.  I love that they are packed full of healthy ingredients, contain whole wheat flour, and are sweetened with honey instead of refined sugar.  I added dark chocolate chips for a little extra treat cause who doesn’t love chocolate?? I sure do!!

Recipe makes approx 24 and the leftovers freeze well.
