Healthy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

    And now for something sweet! Well, sort of. I took a recipe from Paula Dean and made some modifications. Paula's recipe was 8 Points+ a serving, and I brought this down to 4! This is also the first time I've ever made, or eaten, zucchini bread. This isn't very sweet, as I lowered the amount of sugar in the recipe, so I'm not sure if there's not enough sugar in the recipe, or if zucchini bread is not usually inherently sweet.. But none-the-less I liked it! I subbed the oil in the recipe for a mashed banana, but could also use 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce, for the same point value. Thinking getting some whole wheat flour to start doing more baking with, and see if that helps to bring down the point values as well!
