Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 1hour
Total Time 1hour15minutes
1 1/2cupsshredded zucchini (about 1 medium-large zucchini, do not squeeze excess liquid out)
1/2cupplain greek yogurt(I used fat free)
1/4teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4cupschocolate chips, divided (milk or semi-sweet, I prefer the semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x5 inch bread pan. In a medium-large bowl combine zucchini, greek yogurt, sugars, eggs, and vanilla and mix well.
Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.
Transfer batter to prepared bread pan and bake for 55-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out "dry" (it can have chocolate on it but shouldn't be covered in wet batter).
Allow to cool completely, then gently run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the bread and remove it from the pan. Melt the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips and drizzle or spread on top of bread.
Slice and serve or store in an airtight container for 4-5 days (at room temperature) or 5-10 days (chilled). If you want to store the bread to serve later, I recommend letting the drizzled chocolate cool completely (10-20 mins) before transferring to an airtight container.
You can get about 10 thick slices (like the ones in the photographs) from this bread, or more if you slice it thinner.
