I know you all saw this coming, right? Summer….garden…zucchini…. it’s a given right?

There’s no surprise that zucchini recipes are going to be rolling in. But I at least left a surprise for the top.

I take that back too. You all know me by now. I pretty much add chocolate to everything that exists. Why? Because I like that’s why. It makes life fun. Sweet. More doable.

I almost can’t believe that this is my first zucchini bread and muffins of the season. I’ve been waiting forever it seems for zucchini and now I just have so much to make. Did you see my jalapeno stuffed zucchini boats? Yum! My list goes on for quite some time. So I won’t bore you to tears.

Last year I put this zucchini bread recipe on the blog but wanted something a little less chocolate but definitely not lose it all together. So here’s what I came up with and it’s downright delish!

Of course, you can leave off the chocolate if you must. So you can enjoy this regardless. This is a wonderful flavorful bread without or without the chocolate.

    I can’t believe I haven’t made zucchini bread yet this season! Your bread is a push in the right direction for me — it looks so delicious, especially with that chocolate glaze. :)

    I’m about to make some zucchini muffins myself today, Melanie … trying to resist putting chocolate in, but I haven’t decided yet. 😉
    I totally agree though that chocolate should be added to as many recipes as possible! Love that this zucchini bread is wholewheat.

    Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday!

    Visiting from Time to Sparkle link party. I’ve never baked with courgette before but definitely want to try it. This loaf and mini cakes look yummy! I co-host Sweet and Savoury Sunday and would love for you to stop by and share this and other recipes with us. Have a great day!

    Your glaze is brilliant… just enough chocolate to entice the kids, but not too much for me. I would love it if you would bring this by Foodie Friday today.
