Cooks Note: I know it has been a long time since I have posted, and I apologize for that. With the kids being home for Summer and going on a European Vacation I have been so super busy. But, I am back and trying to get rid of all of the "excess" from the trip (and before) so I have been looking for healthier recipes for the fam. I came across this one and figured that since it had chocolate chips, I may be able to sneak it by my monsters as something yummy. For this one I peeled the zucchini instead of grating it with the green peel (my kids would see the green and turn up their nose). The bread turned out great, the chocolate chips really make a big difference. One of my kids did say, "What is this green thing?" and I said, "I don't know, just eat it!" I played dumb and it worked out well. Enjoy!
