Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Super rich and chocolatey.  My kids were super excited about this treat.  I didn't mention it had zucchini...no one needed to know :)   I tried this with oil and with subbing the oil out for applesauce. It was great both ways. 
Recipe from:  Babble, The Family Kitchen


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil (or apple sauce)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 packed cups grated zucchini (don’t peel it)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini)

Preheat oven at 350 F. Spray two 9×5 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 with the zucchini and chocolate chips. Stir just until combined, and divide between the loaf pans.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the tops are cracked and springy to the touch. Makes 2 cakes.
