Happy Chocolate Day! (Chocolate Zucchini Bread #Recipe)

What a great day--it's chocolate day!  Or at least one of them--I have found several other dates that claim to be chocolate day.  I guess since it is such a great day, more than one is necessary!

In celebration, we baked up a batch of Chocolate Zucchini Bread.  I am not really sure where I got this recipe, but it is so delicious and moist.  You won't even know there is zucchini in it!  Since there is no oil and some whole wheat flour, it is healthier than other recipes.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cups unsweetened applesauce
3 eggs
3 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups shredded zucchini
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350°.  Beat eggs, sugar, applesauce and vanilla in a large bowl.  Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.  Gradually add to sugar mixture and mix until well blended.  Stir in zucchini.  Add chocolate chips.  Bake in two 8" x 4" greased pans for 45-50 minutes.

Happy Chocolate Day!
