Chocolate Zucchini Bread Recipe

Do you have zucchini coming out of your ears?  If you don't you probably know someone who'd love to give you some from their garden.  :)  I made this chocolate zucchini bread recipe and both the kids and the adults in our family love it.   I substituted half the amount of oil with applesauce and it turned out fabulous.  Very moist and less fatty. Yay!
