Chocolate Zucchini Bread

We have enjoyed this simple, bread like cake, a lot. The original recipe comes from Penzey's a spice company.

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 TB butter
6 tb cocoa powder
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup chocolate chips

In mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla. In saucepan, melt butter and add cocoa powder. Set aside to cool. Grate zucchini. Mix zucchini, with cocoa powder/butter mixture and when cooled combine with egg mixture. Add flour, soda, salt, cinnamon. Mix only enough to blend. Coat chocolate schips in some flour to keep them from sinking. Add to batter. POur into 2 greased 8 " pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes. Eat!

To improve the "healthiness" of this recipe, I  substitute 1 cup honey for the sugar and cut the oil from 1 Cup to 1/2 cup and use coconut oil.
