Chocolate Zucchini Bread

The best!!!!

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups sugar
1/2 C baking cocoa
1- 1/2 t. Baking powder
1- 1/2 t. Baking soda
1 t. Salt
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
4 eggs
1-1/2 C oil  (I use coconut, but has to be warmed to liquid when mixing you can use vegetable oil too-just not good for you!)
2 T. Butter, melted
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract
3C Grated zucchini
a big heaping helping of semisweet chocolate chips.
*optional* raisins or pecans

Mix all of the dry ingredients (first seven).  In a separate bowl, mix eggs, oil, butter, vanilla and mix well.  If you are using coconut oil, you might have to gently warm the mixture to make it liquid before adding to dry ingredients. I used a metal bowl and held it over an empty pan over the stove top to prevent the eggs from cooking.   Stir well into dry mix until moistened throughout.  Fold in zucchini and chocolate chips.  I would say a cup of them, but I won't lie, I add more than that!!

Grease and flour two 8X4X2 loaf pans.  Divide equally and bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.  Mine never really come out clean.  That's okay, it is rich and decadent!!
