Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups shredded zucchini
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans, optional)

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. Beat eggs in a big bowl; add the rest of the ingredients, including the dry mixture, and mix well. Add a heaping cup of chocolate chips and mix in. Spray 2 bread pans with Pam, or grease with shortening or vegetable oil. Pour the batter into the 2 pans and bake in a 325 oven for about an hour. I usually have to give it an extra 5-10 minutes (I have an electric oven). Cool (or serve warm) and enjoy!
