The other day I was in the middle of one of my pinning sprees and a chocolate zucchini bread kept popping up. I mean, I’d go to the popular tab, it would be there. I’d go to the food tab, it was there too. I’d go to my home page and 4 people I follow had pinned it. It was haunting me.

So yesterday I was making this to go with dinner and the whole time I was whispering to myself “Please have leftover zucchini. Please have leftover zucchini. Pleeeease….” And luckily I did but then I went to my baking cabinet to get the chocolate and there was none. No chips, no chunks, not even a Hershey’s bar leftover from s’mores. (I’m not saying that my husband fed all the chocolate to the kids while he was on leave but… yeah…)

I did have a bag of cinnamon chips and since zucchini bread is usually filled with cinnamon, I knew it would be delicious. They turned out so soft and delicious! My oldest wouldn’t touch the zucchini in that rice dish I linked up there but he gobbled these up without complaint.
