Nana’s Zucchini Bread

This recipe is a favorite break-time snack with our garden shed crew! It’s moist and light because of the zucchini. 

Everyone–from the first-generation farmers to the third-generation grandkids–enjoys this bread. Make one loaf with chocolate chips and one without so you can have a slice for breakfast or dessert!
