Chocolate Zucchini Blender Bread

Are you a fan of cake for breakfast? That’s pretty much how this zucchini bread tastes and I’m so here for it!

I need a lot of quick easy snacks either to pack for work or munch on at home in between a busy day of telehealth patients. Blender muffins and breads are freakin perfect! I can make a bunch at once, they keep well, and the flavor combinations are endless.

If you don’t have a food processor or blender, you can swap the 2 cups of oats for a cup and a half of oat flour (which you could make with a coffee grinder) or regular white or whole wheat flour and grate the zucchini and use about 1 packed cup.

The Stuff

  • 1 small to medium zucchini, chopped in large chunks
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

The Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13×9 pan (you can also use a bread pan or muffin tin)
  2. Put all ingredients except the dark chocolate chips into the food processor and blend until smooth
  3. Pour batter into the pan and sprinkle with chocolate chips
  4. Bake for ~20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Cool and then store in an airtight container or freeze any extras to enjoy later

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @bitebetanutrition on instagram.
