My grandmother inspires this recipe’s secret ingredient! She has a tendency to add secret vegetables to every dessert she makes. Adding zucchini adds extra Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and potassium to this yummy dessert.

-If you shred the zucchini well enough, you may be able to pass this bread off as a regular chocolate chip loaf!
-If your feeling extra creative, try substituting in raisins instead of chocolate chips. Or stir in some shredded coconut for some added fibre!
