  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup greek yogurt (I use 2% Fage)
  • 8 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 cups zucchini shredded
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine yogurt, butter, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk.

  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until all of the flour is incorporated.

  5. Fold in the zucchini and then the chocolate chips, reserving a few chocolate chips to sprinkle on the top.

  6. Scoop mixture into prepared loaf pans.  Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.  Place into the oven. Begin checking for doneness at 55 minutes for 9 inch loaf pans, 50 minutes for foil disposable loaf pans, or 40 minutes for disposable foil mini loaf pans.  

  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  8. Slice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This recipe will make 2 loaves if using 9 inch loaf pans (I use ceramic), 3 loaves if using foil disposable loaf pans, and 5 loaves if using foil disposable mini loaf pans.

The batter will be dry.  Don't worry, the zucchini in the recipe adds moisture as it cooks.  

You can prepare your loaf pans by spraying with olive oil, rubbing with melted butter or spraying with cooking spray.

Place the filled loaf pans onto a baking sheet before putting into the oven.  The batter rises and may drip.  It will also make the loaf pans easier to take out of the oven when they are done!

Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle of the loaf.  If it comes out clean, the bread is done.
