Chocolate/Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This is wonderful, and who would guess it was zucchini bread!
The recipe makes two loaves.  

In a medium bowl, mix together:
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sugar
3 cups grated zucchini
In a large bowl (I use my mixer bowl), add and mix:
2-1/3 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
Stir in:
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips
Then add the zucchini mixture to this and mix well.  Pour into two greased pans.  If you cut parchment paper to fit the bottoms of the pans, the loaves are easy to get out. Bake in a 350 deg. oven for 45 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean.  Cool for 20 minutes before removing from pans.
