Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

It’s zucchini season! And while we all know that this super-versatile, ultra low-calorie summer squash is great baked, grilled, broiled, or spiralized, it also can make fantastically moist baked goods…. like my Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf! Perfect for a quick morning bite, a satisfying dessert, or a solution to that 3pm donut craving, this […]

Peas and carrots. PB & J. McAdams and Gosling. Some things just go together. But “healthy eating” and “cheesecake”? Those two aren’t exactly joined at the hip.
