Summer Squash Chocolate Chip Bread

If your backyard is still overflowing with summer squash and zucchini, this is a great recipe for you. I always like to have bread or muffins at home for an unexpected guest or a quick snack. This bread freezes beautifully and is perfect for those days when you are pressed for time and want a quick bite. Chocolate makes this a super kid and adult friendly bread and its a great way to make sure you get your veggies but are still enjoying a sweet treat.
