Chocolate chip zucchini bread

Using Greek Yogurt makes this recipe healthier than usual, and sweetened by chocolate chips.

My son sprayed the loaf pan, squeezed in a splash of lemon juice, shredded the zucchini, held the grater while I shredded more zucchini, and finally decided to rest (thank goodness)! We baked a scrumptious yet healthy treat for everyone enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Baking spray (for loaf pan)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or white flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • About 2 cups shredded zucchini- 2 big or 3 small zucchinis
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • *a quick squeeze of lemon juice if your child insists

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray loaf pan with baking spray.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, yogurt, oil, flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and zucchini. *And a squeeze of lemon juice.
  4. Gently blend in chocolate chips with a spoon.
