Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Here is a variation on our family's regular zucchini bread. Much of my extended family prefer the chocolate version and so do my little girls (though they like the regular, too).  I love that either way, we have a tasty, hearty treat with whole wheat flour and no refined sugar!


1/2 c. shortening
1/3 c. applesauce
1 c. honey
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
4 Tb. cocoa
½ c. sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. cloves
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
2 ½ c. whole wheat flour
2 c. grated zucchini

Cream together shortening, applesauce and honey. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Add cocoa and sour cream. Mix well.

Add remaining dry ingredients. Mix well.

Mix in zucchini.

Pour into 2 greased bread pans.

Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.
