This is a very moist chocolate and zucchini bread. I love it because it has so many good ingredients and yet , it is very chocolaty good. I used Greek yogurt and a delicate olive oil.
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup Sugar
- ⅓ cup Olive Oil
- ½ cup Yogurt
- 1 ½ cups Flour
- ⅓ cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 3 cups grated and squeezed Zucchini
- 1 cup Chocolate Chips, ¼ of it for topping
First, preheat the oven to 350°. Grease 2 loaf pans (8 ½ x 4 ½ inches) and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat Eggs and Sugar. Add the Olive Oil and Yogurt. Mix well. Add the Cocoa and mix with a spatula.
In another bowl, mix Flour, Salt, Vanilla Extract and Baking Powder. Then sift into the Egg mixture. Stir until smooth but don’t overdo it. Add the Zucchini and stir until it is coated with the batter.
Put aside ¾ cup of Chocolate Chips. Sprinkle the remaining with a little Flour and fold in the batter. Don’t overmix. Divide the batter evenly into the the two pans. Top each with the Chocolate Chips set aside and bake for 65 minutes.
Let cool completely before slicing.
