Recipe: Skinny Dark Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30-40 minutes

Yield: 16 servings

Serving size: 1 slice


1¼ cup white whole wheat flour

1¼ cup all purpose flour

¾ cup baking cocoa

¼ cup sugar

1¼ teaspoon baking soda

1¼ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

2 cups grated zucchini

1 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt

⅔ cup unsweetened applesauce

1½ tablespoons vanilla


1 teaspoon powdered sugar for dusting

*Optional ingredients are not included in nutrition calculations.


Preheat the oven to 325° F and grease two 8-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.

In another medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, and then add the zucchini, yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla. Stir to combine.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

Evenly pour the batter between the two prepared loaf pans and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes.

Allow the loaves to cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before flipping the bread out of the pan. Let the bread cool completely before slicing. Dust with optional powdered sugar as desired.
