  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8-inch metal baking pan and set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend the oats until pulverized and smooth to make oat flour. They should be fine like flour.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, combine the maple syrup, coconut oil, Greek yogurt, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the shredded zucchini.
  • Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Don’t over mix. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips and a little flaky sea salt, if desired. Bake for 18 to 24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Cut into squares and serve!


Don't squeeze the liquid out of the shredded zucchini, you need the moisture for the cake to be moist. 
Store the cake covered on the counter for up to 3 days.
