Apple Zucchini Bread

When Brent was just out of the hospital a few weeks ago, (He is doing great now and back to work) one of my friends came over with a box full of goodies. Inside were fresh veggies, candy, homemade soups, and several kinds of zucchini bread. 

What a treat that was for the both of us! Isn't it wonderful how God sends you friends just when you need them? 

On top of Brent's surgery, we had both come down with horrible colds, and were feeling rather blue. It sure lifted our spirits at such an act of kindness. Not too mention how tasty everything was!

Of course I asked for the recipes, and today I am sharing one of them. The apple zucchini bread was so moist and delicious. We loved the flavors of the spices along with the chocolate chips. We would have some mid afternoon for a snack during those long days of recovery......we kept watching the clock for the time to arrive! 

What a great fall treat!
