2 Cups All purpose flour (replace one cup with whole wheat flour if you wish)

1/2 Cup Oil of choice

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1 Tbsp Vanilla

2 Eggs

3 Cups finely shredded zucchini (Do not drain)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 by 13 pan. In a large bowl combine oil, sugar, and vanilla until mixed.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add in all dry ingredents exept for the chocolate chips/nuts and mix, batter will be very dry. Fold in the zucchini and allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes, add in chocolate chips/nuts and mix again until combined.  If batter is still too dry let is rest another 5 minutes and mix again.

Spread batter into your prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
