I have so much garden fresh zucchini this time of year that I needed to find more new recipe use it up.  I went off an old zucchini bread recipe,  added the coconut milk along with two kinds of dark chocolate to make these little babies.. They were Fabulous!!!  You could probably healthy these up even more, but I like them just the way they are.. Enjoy
