Tasty Tuesdays: Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
Do you still have zucchini coming from your garden?  I had several zucchini a couple of weeks ago and decided to make chocolate zucchini bread.
{ recipe adapted from A Little Nosh Blog.  Find the recipe here }
- 2 cups all purpose flour (feel free to substitute whole wheat if you'd like)
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups zucchini, grated (use your cheese grater)
1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
3.  In a large bowl, stir the vanilla, oil, eggs, banana and honey until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, then stir in the grated zucchini.
4.  Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 50 - 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, and then remove and cool on wire rack until completely cool.
I definitely liked the bread, but I was expecting it to be a little sweeter.  It looks just like a brownie, so I guess I was expecting it to taste like on too!  next time, I think I would add 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
