Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Yield 10 - 12 slices


  • 1 1/4 cup spelt, white, or oat flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Dutch or additional regular cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt, just over level
  • 2/3 cup sugar, unrefined or xylitol if desired
  • 1 1/4 cup finely grated zucchini (gram measurements listed above)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, dairy free if desired
  • 1/4 cup oil, or additional yogurt for oil free
  • 2 eggs or flax eggs (substitutions are listed above)
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini or regular chocolate chips, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan. Stir together all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and stir to form a batter. Smooth into the loaf pan. Press some extra chocolate chips into the top if desired. Bake on the center rack 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. Once cooled, I highly recommend loosely covering with a cloth and letting sit overnight, either on the counter or in the fridge, because the flavor and texture are even better the next day!
