  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded fresh zucchini


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour a loaf pan (or use cooking spray).
  2. Combine eggs, yogurt, and oil in a mixing bowl and blend well. Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and baking powder and blend. Batter will be thick.
  3. Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and zucchini and stir until well combined.
  4. Pour batter into pan. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons chocolate chips on top of loaf. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Set pan on a wire rack and let rest for 15 minutes. Slide a knife around the edges to loosen loaf from pan. Carefully turn out loaf onto wire rack and cool.
