Ingredients• 1 1/2 cups zucchini, shredded • 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee powder or 1/4 teaspoon espresso powder • 3/4 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil • 2 large eggs • 1/2 cup granulated sugar • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Move the oven rack to the lower third position.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare a 9x5- or 8x4-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Place the shredded zucchini on some paper towels to absorb some of the moisture. Press down with a paper towel set on top of the zucchini. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, instant coffee powder, and chocolate chips until well combined. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, sugar, yogurt, and vanilla until fully combined.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients mixture while lightly whisking until just combined.
Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, fold in the zucchini.
Spoon or pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, scraping the sides of the bowl.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes.
Allow the bread to completely cool for 2 hours in the pan and place on a wire rack.
Slice the bread after it cools.
