    Tasted really good! Added vanilla extract instead of the almond.

    I will likely find another recipe just because I don't like any coffee flavor at all.

    Not as moist as I expected I would make it again and not allow the zucchini to drain

    I used dark cocoa and added chocolate chips-it came out moist and delicious! I'll make again for sure!

    This recipe is really good. I’ve tried it for 2 times. For the first time I added everything as in the recipe. The second time I added 1/3 less of sugar as there is in the recipe. This one was definitely better! And use bowl like on the picture for sure. Thank you for tip! One of my favorite.

    This is delicious, the espresso granules and almond essence make it special. I’ve made this many times. It’s a favorite!

    Wonderful! I omitted some ingredients, to make it only chocolate flavored. But so good!

    Awesome! Added chocolate chips in batter & some on top. Turned out great and froze great for months as well.

    I replaced 1 cup of AP flour with whole wheat flour. The mixed was super dry to me; so I added one cup of unsweetened applesauce. It is very moist & awesome!!!

    Amazing!!! My boyfriend literally ate 3/4 of the loaf in 2 days. Oops.😄 Chocolate lover approved! Followed the recipe to a "T" (made sure to use fresh zucchini) and it turned out great. Super moist, not too sweet, but definitely chocolate-y!

    Delicious and not too sweet. It's a moist yummy bread. Great way to use extra zucchini from the garden and I feel healthy eating it.

    4 stars Delicious. chocolate glazed it. Good recipe for using a good amount of zucchini. Loved the subtle taste of almond flavoring and will add a bit more to next batch.
