  • 3 eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups zucchini (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi sweet or dark)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heavily grease or parchment line two 9x5 loaf pans or 4 mini loaf pans.
  • In large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil, sour cream, grated zucchini, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the liquid ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven for 60-70 minutes for large loaves or 45-50 minutes for mini loaves. Insert a toothpick or cake tester into the middle of a loaf to check for doneness before removing from oven.
  • Remove from pans and allow loaves to cool on wire rack.


To freeze loaves, allow them to fully cool. Then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and then again in foil. To defrost, allow them to thaw in refrigerator or on the counter.
Makes two large loaves or 4 mini loaves or one large and two mini loaves. Serving suggestion based on 1 large loaf getting sliced into 8 slices with one slice being a single serving.
