Greek Yogurt Chocolate Zucchini Bread – Healthy and delicious this simple chocolate zucchini bread is made with Greek yogurt and honey. It has less sugar, is better for you and tastes great! Summer time favorite.
Zucchini is abundant in our garden. I did a little cheating this year. And bought a starter plant so I could have zucchini in June instead of waiting until July. Well my $2 investment has certainly paid off. We’ve harvested about 10 zucchini so far. And we’re just getting started.
We do use it for many other things too. Like these amazing zucchini boats. Seriously, you must try them. They are so good. Everyone in our family loves them. And there’s never leftovers.
So I want to ask. What are your favorite ways to make zucchini in the summer? The last zucchini boats I made were terrible, no one liked them. I’ll make sure that I DO NOT share the recipe with you. 🙂 But what are those can’t miss, must make recipes your family loves with zucchini as the superstar ingredient? PLEASE share!
You’ll love this bread because:
- It’s moist and flavorful with rich chocolate taste.
- It’s healthier because it’s made with Greek yogurt and coconut oil; better fats.
- I’ve reduced some of the sugar and replaced with honey, a natural sweeter.
I hope your family enjoys it!
