Anna's Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Wanna sneak something healthy in a delicious CHOCOLATEY snack? Then this recipe's for you:

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups zucchini, peeled & shredded
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in zucchini. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to zucchini mixture & mix well. Pour into 2 greased 8-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour or until bread tests done.

Note: fill pans half-full, you may need more than 2 pans.
Also: Might try substituting "egg beaters" and "Splenda for Baking" to reduce the calories.
