Chocolate Swirl Zucchini Bread
A few months ago I shared this Chocolate Swirl Zucchini Bread over at The Recipe Critic, but I wanted to share it here because it’s one of my favorite breads ever!
So I started reading the Twilight series…again. Yeah, I’m one of those people.
Every six months or so I get a craving for them. A pull. This time, since I’d loaned out one of the books, I decided I needed all four of them on my kindle. So now I own a complete set in paperback…and digital.
Yes, as I said. I’m one of those people.
I’m halfway through Breaking Dawn. Jacob just looked at Reneeseme for the first time. My heart went pitter-patter.
I really am obsessed. I feel like I did the first time I read them…and this is probably my 6th read, no joke. When I’m done I’ll re-watch all the movies…again.
And no, Kristen Stewart doesn’t bother me. Maybe she should…but she doesn’t.
I’m one of those people, remember?
Although I feel the pull to my kindle to finish the last book because I just want to read it, my reading time has drastically slowed, because when I finish, the story will be over. And then I will be depressed. And I’ll want to start right over with Twilight again. It’s a vicious cycle.
Instead, I’m going to download the Harry Potter series. I’ve never read them. Go ahead, get the gasping out of the way. I’m a Harry Potter virgin.
In my defense, I was never into sci-fi or those sorts of mystical stories…until I read Twilight.
I’m hoping Harry will take my mind off Edward and the
jail-bait, er, Jacob.
So, while I’m obsessed with everything sparkly and granite, I’m showing you this chocolate swirl zucchini bread. I had to share it here because it was an amazing recipe…and we all have shredded zucchini in our freezers, right?
This bread is seriously one of my favorites. It’s a simple bread that comes together super fast, and one of the things I love most about it is that there is no butter or oil in the recipe. It’s made with applesauce and greek yogurt instead, so it’s super moist and still somewhat healthy!
That means I can eat three pieces!
It’s the one that inspired this Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread. I know, they’re nothing alike. But whatever.
Plus, I love that it has a chocolate swirl. Doesn’t a chocolate swirl make everything better?
This bread makes a very large loaf, so what I did was slice it after it cooled and froze the slices. Then, whenever I need a zucchini bread fix, I just grab a bag from my freezer and warm it up. I love enjoying it with a cup of coffee after my workout, because it’s totally post workout food. I mean, you read that up there, right? No butter or oil? Greek yogurt? It’s totally post-workout food.
And it goes perfectly with a side of vampire.
