) Preheat the oven to 350°F; lightly grease an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan or use parchment paper.
) Beat the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
) Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, (espresso powder optional), cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined.
) Add the zucchini and chocolate chips.
) Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
) Bake the bread for 65 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean, except for a possible light smear of chocolate from the melted chips, yum!).
) When the bread is done remove it from the oven, and allow it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack.
) Cool completely before slicing; store well-wrapped, at room temperature.
Yield: one 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf.
