Chocolate Patty Pan Squash Bread

In our second CSA pickup, we received a whole bunch of patty pan squash.
We grilled some, but coming up on week 4 we still had 4 hanging out in the fridge.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and knowing how we love sweets decided to give it a go.
It was very rich, decadent, and delicious-- perfect for dessert or for breakfast -- and had barely a hint of being full of squash!
yield: 1 loaf of bread

2.5C patty pan squash, shredded (this was 3 patty pan squash for me, 2 on the smaller side and one bigger one)
1C vegetable oil
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4C sugar
1/2C brown sugar
1.5C flour
1/2C cocoa powder
1/4C plain Greek yogurt
2 tbs baking powder
1C chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.
  3. Mix oil, eggs, and sugars in a large mixing bowl (I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer) until well combined.
  4. Add in flour, cocoa powder, yogurt, and baking powder until well combined.
  5. Fold in squash and chocolate chips, mixing until well combined.
  6. Bake for 70-80 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Enjoy!
