Really? A week already?

Time flies! We had a crazy busy week last week with a garage/bake sale, canning, rental turn overs, and life in general!

Today, we were equally busy, but I did want to share a recipe.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the zucchini and chocolate chips. Mix until blended, either by hand or with a mixer. Fold in the zucchini and the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased bread pan.

Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
* I used 2 zucchini and ended up with 6 cups of zucchini. I made 4 loaves total and will freeze them.
* Do not peel the zucchini, just shred it up!
