  • 1.5 cups shredded zucchini excess moisture squeezed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter OR oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks


  • Prep: Line the bottom of a 5x9 inch loaf pan with parchment and grease the sides. Preheat the oven to 360°F.
  • Make batter: Add zucchini, oil, honey, Greek yogurt, eggs and vanilla to a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and stir until combined. Add dry to wet ingredients and fold just until combined - do not overmix, a few lumps are fine! Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  • Bake: Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake the bread in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
