Chocolate Banana Zucchini Bread


Today… I started school. Arfffff.
We've been doing bits and pieces of work throughout the last year because we were catching up from the move.

BUT TODAY… we actually did stuff.
Like math, english, AND geography? and a bunch of other stuff? all together in ONE day?
I'm confused.

That being said, there was obviously gonna be some bakin' goin' on up in herrrrrrr.
With chocolate. DUH DUHHHHHH!

Oh yah, and I forgot to mention, it's getting like hot here. Like how you would THINK Africa is. Yah it's happening…
Which is weird because school starting and hot weather only getting hotter makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

So turning on the oven is kind of becoming not fun.
Guys, I sweat just so I can eat yummy food other than bananas and bran.

Well all you people are up to the wazoo in pumpkin spice lattes and apple pies, I'm just starting to see berries and zucchini at the store!

It's a weird world we live in… A world where banana, zucchini, and chocolate blur together into a luscious loaf.



First… You'll need to shred the zucchini. Good, fresh, green zucchini. Then set that stuff aside. You'll grab it in a bit. 



Now whisk together the yogurt, eggs, 'nilla, and sugahhhhhh! 



Mash up your bananas and mix into the yogurt/eggs mixture. 


Add in the zucchini...


Flour… Yah I pictured the wheat flour. Because I want you to think that I'm being healthy here. 


And the COCOA! Good stuff. Toss the goods into a greased loaf pan and you're ready for business!



Chocolate Banana Zucchini Bread
1 c. plain yogurt {I used Greek}
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
2 small bananas, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. shredded zucchini {about 2 small zucchini}
1 c. AP flour
1 c. wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9x5 in. loaf pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the yogurt, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in mashed bananas and shredded zucchini. Combine flour, baking powder, and cocoa in a large bowl. Add in the wet ingredients; stir until just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake until set- about 50 minutes to an hour. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and turn onto a wire rack.
