Chocolate Chip Zucchini Collagen Bread Recipe

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.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-sized zucchinis, grated (about 2 cups grated before squeezing out water)
