Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Yes, there are four cups of zucchini in this recipe. It may seem like a lot, but trust me, it’s just perfect. You can put all of the chocolate chips into the batter, but I like to keep some for sprinkling on top. This also makes great muffins and mini loaves, just be sure to adjust your baking time accordingly.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans, or one 9x5 pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In another large bowl, combine sugars, eggs, melted butter and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture to the sugar/butter mixture and stir to combine. Do not over mix.
Fold in grated zucchini and 1 cup of chocolate chips.
Spread batter in prepared loaf pans and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over top
Bake for 40-60 minutes (depending on size) or until an inserted knife comes out clean. If necessary, cover with foil during the last 10-15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.
