After searching for a chocolate zucchini bread recipe that didn't require a lot of oil, I came up with this winner. Your kids will really like it and it's great to be able to enjoy something that's healthy and chocolate at the same time. Whole Wheat White Flour is available from King Arthur. It has the same fiber content as whole wheat flour, but with a less distinctive taste.
