Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups packed grated zucchini ( 2 medium-size or 3 small ones)
  • ⅔ cup bitter-sweet chocolate chips (65% cacao)

Add (slightly cooled) melted butter and vanilla extract and continue to whisk until smooth. Whisk in the zucchini. Then slowly whisk in the cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and flour until all the flour mixture is well incorporated, about 2 minutes or 25 strokes. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
