1 cup sugar
1/3 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
½ cup yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 and ½ cups flour
1 and ½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cups grated and squeezed zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips, plus ¼ cup for topping
Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Grease 2 loaf pans (8 x4 inches) and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Add in olive oil, yogurt and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Add in cocoa and mix with a spatula.
Mix flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and sift into the egg wet mixture. Stir until smooth, but don’t overdo it.
Add in grated zucchini and stir just until it is coated with the batter.
Put 1 cup chocolate chips into a medium bowl. Sprinkle a little flour over them, stir and fold in the batter. Don’t overmix it.
Share the batter into the pans. Top each with extra chocolate chips and bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out slightly moist and with tiny pieces around.
Let it cool completely before slicing and serving.
