  • Servings



  • cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • tsp baking powder

  • ½

    tsp baking soda

  • ¼

    tsp salt

  • 2


  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

  • cup canola oil

  • 1

    tsp vanilla extract

  • cups shredded zucchini

  • 3

    cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided


1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Coat a 11" x 8" baking pan with cooking spray. 2.) Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. 3.) Whisk the eggs, sugar, yogurt, oil, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. Whisk in the zucchini and 1 1/2 cups of the chips. Stir into the flour mixture just until blended. Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 4.) Remove from the oven and sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups chips over the cake. Spread with a small spatula as they melt to form an icing, placing back into the warm oven, if needed, for about 1 minute.
