I cut the flour back to 2 1/2 cups and added an additional 1/2 cup of cocoa powder to make up the difference. I also increased the baking powder to a full teaspoon and used pecans instead of walnuts. I made muffins out of this recipe, I was able to get 18 muffins. I did bake them at 350 for just about 22 minutes. This recipe turned out moist and delicious--I'm really glad I thought to increase the cocoa powder. My kids both thought it needs more chocolate chips. I think I could get away with cutting back the sugar by half next time and increasing the chocolate chips, maybe use mini-chocolate chips.

this bread is more like a cake..it is very moist i think the amount of oil should be reduced to 1/2 cup it almost is a little greasy so much so it most definitly has a tendancy to stick to the pan bottom even using a quality no stick pan otherwise enjoy my family did

Enjoyed this very much, substituted 1/2 cup of Oil and 1/2 cup of Applesauce to cut down on the oil and greasy consistency as mentioned in the other review...Made one loaf for home and one for my girlfriend to take to work...everyone's loved it. One thing I've noticed is the Chocolate chips and nuts take on the flavor of the Zucchini more so than the actual bread does. It's almost like eating Coco Puffs...but it's pretty epic...I'll be making this again when fresh pumpkin is out of season :D
