Cook Time 30 mins

Total Time  45

Servings: 8-10



  • 150 g Dark Chocolate (I used 85% cacao)
  •  3 Eggs separated (Egg yolks and Egg whites)
  • 75 g of Date Sugar (150 g zucchini (around 1 big) cut into pieces
  • 40 g Whole Grain Flour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Chocolate Chips to spread on the top (optional)


  • First melt the dark chocolate using a microwave or double boiler.
  • Put the melted dark chocolate in a food processor. 
  • Add egg yolks, sugar, pinch of salt and vanilla and mix them together.
  • Add zucchini and whole grain flour and blend them again until you don't see big pieces of zucchini.
  • Beat the egg whites using a hand mixer until stiff peaks.
  • Combine egg whites with the chocolate batter, but slowly, because we want the batter to stay fluffy.
  • Pour the batter mix  into a 20 cm cake form (brushed with some oil). Add chocolate chips on the top, and bake it in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 30 mins.
