Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I wanted to share this delicious recipe that I found for Chocolate Zuccini Bread!! I hope you enjoy it...I can't leave it alone!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread {makes 2 loaves}
Recipe by Our Best Bites

2 C Flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 Cup + 2 Tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 C canola oil
1 C granulated sugar
1/4 C brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C sour cream
3 C grated zucchini
3/4 C mini chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet/Audrey)

2 T brown sugar
2 T white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour 2 loaf pans and set aside.
2. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
3. Place flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
4. With a stand or hand mixer beat oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and eggs until combined and slightly full, 1-2 minutes.
5. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix until combined. Gently stir in the zucchini. Take a spoonful of the flour mixture and stir in with the chocolate chips (that will help keep them evenly distributed.) Stir remaining flour mixture into batter and mix just until combined. Add chocolate chips and stir to combine.
6. Divide the batter between the two pans and sprinkle topping over each.
7. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Set your timer for 45 minutes and then keep an eye on the loaves for the remaining time. When they're done, a toothpick or skewer should come out without goopy batter on it, and the tops will be gorgeous and cracked with sugar. Remove from oven and let them cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes and then remove from pans.
