Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This incredibly moist and soft zucchini bread is full of flavour. It has just enough chocolate chips to excite the person that doesn’t think it’s a good idea to put vegetables into dessert!

Even better? Add a drizzle of maple butter loaded with skin benefits by sneaking in CanPrev’s Collagen Beauty. These collagen peptides are formulated to smooth skin and reduce wrinkles in just 28 days.
