With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to make something for you guys to show you just how much I love you!  So I whipped you up this deliciously simple ONE-BOWL double chocolate yogurt zucchini bread.

Like you guys, this isn’t just any old zucchini bread, it’s extra-ordinary zucchini bread.  It’s not only packed with double the chocolate flavor, but it also provides a good dose of nutrition!  Talk about having your cake bread and eating it too!

You’re getting fiber from the whole grain flour and oodles of shredded zucchini, plus I added in some 4% siggi’s vanilla yogurt which provides an added protein punch with simple ingredients and not a lot of sugar.

That means this is the type of bread that you can feel good serving to the whole family (or just keeping for a Valentine’s Day gift to yourself 😉 )!  Top it with a little nut butter or some more siggi’s and berries for a special V-Day breakfast, serve it with a glass of milk for a snack or, if you really want to win over your Valentines, make french toast out of it!  You’re welcome.

No matter how you choose to serve it, I promise you it will be a hit.

On top of all of that, it literally couldn’t be easier to make.  All you need is one bowl and a good mixer and you’re all set!  If that’s not enough reason to try it, then I don’t know what is!  Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you – I hope this shows you just how much I appreciate each one of you.

whole grain double chocolate zucchini bread

Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 container siggi's 4% vanilla whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 + 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 + 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 2 cups finely shredded, unpeeled zucchini, gently pressed to remove some of the moisture
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 in loaf pan
  2. Combine eggs, yogurt, canola oil, brown sugar and vanilla together in a bowl and mix using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer
  3. Add in flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa mixing until just combined
  4. Gentle fold in zucchini and chocolate chips*
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan using a spatula to spread it out evenly in the pan
  6. Bake for 65 - 70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from batter (you may notice a bit of melted chocolate chips on it, but at long as it's not gooey batter, you're good!)**
  7. Let sit for 10 minutes then gently turn over (you may need to use a butter knife to loosen the sides) onto a cooling rack.
  8. Allow the loaf to cool completely before slicing

Notes

*Make sure you don't over-mix or it will cause the bread to be dry and crumbly **Be careful to cook only to the point of doneness or the bread will be very dry
