Delicious! I made it a bit healthier by omiting the chips, using applesauce instead of oil, replacing 2 c. of AP flour with Whole Wheat Flour, and using honey in place of sugar. The flavor was excellent...very chocolatey and sweet. Will make it again.

I rarely go back and write a review but I had to on this one.. there were so many good reviews that I was so dissappointed when my turned out extremely dry... I followed the recipe to a T ... Will not make again ... should have went ahead and used my orginal choc zucchini receipe that uses 2-1/2 c - flour and 1/2 c cocoa....

I've been making this recipe for a couple of years and it's become a family favorite! I make it as written with the only exception being that I add the chocolate chips to the dry mix so they won't sink. Great recipe!!!

Excellent as is! Family, co-workers, neighbors, and college students devoured it. Cinnamon sounds like a lot, but was just right. Using mini-chocolate chips, can be baked for 45 min. in five small loaf pans, frozen in quart sized freezer bags. Tastes great slightly warmed in microwave.

I made 24 muffins instead of two loaves and they baked up in 20 minutes. I liked the recipe overall but I think it could use a little more cocoa powder in them next time. Coat the chocolate chips with about 1TBPS of the dry mix before adding it to the batter and they will not sink.

I baked this in a Bundt Pan so it took less time like 45 minutes. I also dusted powdered sugar on top when it was cool and I took it to work. Everyone loved it, it was all gone within 30 minutes. This is a very moist and tasty dessert.

Very good. I decided to only add a quarter cup oil and subsituted the rest for apple sauce. Turned out moist. Also added two tablespoons cocoa powder. Will make this again.

Very yummy. I made this with dark chocolate cocoa, 1.5 cups sugar, and a 1/2 c applesauce and a 1/2 c oil. I didn't even get to eat more than a piece or two, it was gone too fast!
