Eggless Zucchini-Chocolate Bread with Walnuts

Eggless Zucchini-Chocolate Bread with Walnuts
Some like it healthy and plain, some like it brown and chocolatey. I belong to the latter group that would never say no to anything with chocolate. So this healthy, moist and delicious Zucchini bread got a small dose of chocolate. Then there were those whole walnuts we collected last Autumn and we still had plenty left. So some of them went in to this bread too.
The result was a super moist bread with crunchy walnuts in between. This bread can very well go for a cake too with the addition of little more sweetness. But this was baked in a loaf pan and hence it shall be called a bread.

On a different note, weather in my part of the world is getting better and better. Although the temperatures are pretty much low, we have beautiful sunny days heralding the arrival of spring. Days are getting longer and it feels good to wake up in the morning and feel the early rays of sun through the window. Yay! :-) I'm so looking forward to vibrant Spring which would also mean more cooking and blogging!

Coming back to the recipe, this was pretty much easy and straight forward. I adapted this recipe from here. The bread was an instant hit at home. This recipe for me is a keeper and I will definitely be making it more often from now on.

In case you're not already a member of our sister site, InspiringCooks.com I would like to invite you to join it.

We will also promote your content by pinning both directly from your site and from our site.

Bonus - when you join Inspiring Cooks, you can also request to be added to My Natural Family’s most popular group boards on Pinterest.
