I had a request from a follower on my Facebook who was looking for a chocolate zucchini loaf. I will admit, I am not a zucchini fan because…well my relationship with veggies is not very good! 😉 I have been told though that you can’t even taste the zucchini and I though ok, I am up for the challenge.. It also gave me a reason for a nice long walk to the local farmer’s market to pick up some zucchini. 🙂 Well to my surprise I loved this loaf, it is easy to make and yields 10 generous pieces at 5 smart points each.

  1. This recipe looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it out!

    For anyone doing freestyle, I put it in the recipe builder and it’s saying it’s only 4pts per serving (I’m guessing the old smart points included the eggs?). Figured I’d share this pleasant surprise!

    1. OH I am so glad you tried this in the new freestyle points app, Kara! I am definitely making this now but will be using real butter. Zucchinis are coming in fast now that it is July!

  2. Looks like a delish way to use my leftover zucchini! Do u squeeze the moisture out of it first? (I plan to leave the peel on for the fiber).
