Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray your loaf pan with no-stick spray.

Grate your zucchini (I cut mine into several wedges first) and set it aside.
In a large bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set Aside.
In seperate bowl beat the oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. Mix in the zucchini and add the flour mixture gradually. Next fold-in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Fill loaf pan 3/4 full and bake about 55 minutes to an hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove bread from pan and cool completely. I always refrigerate this bread.
