Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Submitted by Anna Pippin, MSHN

Zucchini is abundant in the Summertime and a delicious nutrient rich vegetable. It is an excellent source of vitamins C and A, high in antioxidants, and it contains soluble and insoluble fiber so it is good for digestion. This delicious and moist zucchini bread is so flavorful and a great way to use up fresh zucchini from your garden!
