Staying on a healthy approach I figured that vegetables and chocolate are an interesting combination, and why not enjoy a sweet dessert while getting my veggie fix in. This is a delicious, sweet, dessert bread for all chocolate lovers. This is a moist and chocolaty bread that can be used for breakfast, dessert, or snacking. You could add some walnuts or pecans for extra texture, too. Also, you could make these as muffins and decrease the cooking time. What a wonderful way to enjoy chocolate and some vegetables, too.
