I had a pretty relaxing day of working on my honors thesis (due in a week!) and napping, until I decided to make chocolate zucchini banana bread and go for a 6 mile walk/run at night.
I bought a few too many zucchinis over the weekend, and was in the mood for chocolate and banana bread, so I had to think of a way to combine them… and chocolate zucchini banana bread seemed like the natural choice! I ended up coming up with my own recipe and it turned out deliciously–fudgy on the inside, almost crispy on the outside. Not to mention, it’s fat free and full of veggies! The loaf came out at 5pm, so I ended up having half of it for dinner because it was fantastic straight out of the oven and I didn’t feel like cooking anymore… then it gave me a big energy burst to go for the 6 mile walk/run. So that’s the explanation for my weird dinner 😉
