Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

The marathon baking session continued with zucchini bread.  There is something about squash and zucchini.  One plant seems to produce a ton of vegetables.  The double chocolate sounded good as well.  Hide a little veggies in the chocolate.  What could be wrong with that.
These look really dark but I can promise they are not burned.  These will go in the freezer today as well. 
 Don't be put off by all the ingredients this is really an easy recipe.
 First thing you want to do is grate the zucchini so you can let it sit for a few minutes and then squeeze all the liquid out of it.
 Start with 1/2 cup oil
 1/2 cup sugar
 1/2 cup brown sugar
 1 teaspoon vanilla
 2 eggs  Mix all this together.
 Squeeze the zucchini and then add.  1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
 1 cup all purpose flour
 1/2 cup cocoa powder
 1/2 cup chocolate chips.  I used mini chips
 Mix well.  Pour into the mini loaf pans or the regular loaf pan.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.  I baked the mini loaves about 40 minutes.  A regular loaf will bake in about 45 minutes.
Let them rest in the pan for about 5 minutes, then turn out and let cool.  These are going in the freezer as well so let then cool completely.
