Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My friend Michelle gave me 2 giant zucchinis a little while back so I decided yesterday to use them before they go to waste and made this Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread.

This recipes life altering it's so chocolaty and super moist! It makes 2 loaves since most the time when I make zucchini bread it's with one of those zucchini's that's way to large to eat and this breads one of those that has to be shared! 

Colt just happened to grab the second loaf this morning to take to work and texted me to let me know everyone is in love with it! Not that I had even the slightest doubt! I still have a huge zucchini and a half left so I'm thinking I should make a few loaves to take to the neighbors! 

Who doesn't love a super chocolaty loaf of bread packed with lots of hidden veggies?With 1 1/2 cups of zucchini per loaf I totally didn't feel guilty indulging in a slice for breakfast with my cuppa, it was the perfect way to start my day!

Cream together 1 cup Solid Coconut Oil or Room Temperature Butter, 1 cup Granulated Sugar and 1 cup Brown Sugar until light and fluffy. Add 4 whole Eggs one at a time beating well between each addition.
Note: I have used both butter and the coconut oil, I prefer coconut oil but butter works equally as well.
