Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Zucchini bread or cake?  I guess it could be either, so let's compromise and call it a loaf and that way you can eat it with your meal or save it for dessert! 

Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350F; lightly grease an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, mixing until well combined. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan; sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top, if desired.  Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack. Cool completely before slicing.
