White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Zucchini Bread recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

The zucchini from our garden has completely overtaken my kitchen. Luckily, zucchini bread is one of our favorites. The white chocolate and macadamia nuts in this version wound up making it completely irresistible for me.

I kept going back for just a little bit more. It was definitely a good idea to send the rest of this batch off with some family members last night!
