"Halfway Healthy" Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Submitted by: STRONGINTHECITY

Introduction

This recipe was adapted from another, less healthy version. I substituted half healthier ingredients wherever possible. It turned out great and you don't notice the substitutions at all! If you want to make it even healthier, skip the chocolate chips and use Walnuts instead. This recipe was adapted from another, less healthy version.

  • Good, but too sweet. Could stand to use at least 1/2 cup less sugar. Used plain yogurt instead of applesauce since didn't have any, still good. If worried about loss of vol. w/o full sugar, replace w/applesauce or more zucchini. Nuts would be great in this. - 8/29/12
