Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Zucchini Bread

Adapted from: Food Network

This Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Zucchini Bread is absolutely delicious. I bake with whole-wheat flour, which definitely makes a difference in batter consistency. If I don't add a little bit more oil or take it out early then it tends to be a bit dry - but hey! It's on the healthy side, right? Enjoy.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 cup olive oil

2 tsp vanilla

2 packed cups grated zucchini (don't peel it)

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven at 350 F. Spray two 9x5 inch pans with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, beat the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Add the oil and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients along wit the zucchini and chocolate chips. Stir just until combined, and divide between the loaf pans.

Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until tops are cracked and springy to the touch. Makes 2 cakes.
