Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Hello, Fall!

September is a wonderful time of year in my garden.  My tomatoes, hearty greens, and zucchini are bursting with life and ready to be eaten.

This is one of my favorite, healthy, zucchini bread recipes.  100% pure cacao powder, high in age-fighting antioxidants, is always a good choice for baking.
