Anita - I think it would be possible for you to leave off the cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Let me know how it turns out and if your daughter enjoys it!

Made this today & LOVED it! Only things I did different was used egg beaters instead of real eggs & pretty much pureed the zucchini so there was no way my son would know it was there! He loved it too! Thank you!!
