Growth Spurt Or What?!

A few weeks back I made some delicious bread...and BAP devoured half the loaf on his own.  I could not believe it since he is usually so cautious when trying something new.  Seeing me pour chocolate chips into the mixture, I think cinched the deal for him.  Even though this recipe was full of zucchini, he still inhaled it (as long as he could not see the green in the dark - at school it was a different story).

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread
adapted from:

3 eggs
1 1/2 T flaxmeal mixed with 4 1/2 T water
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup applesauce (with cinnamon added) - my sister made a delicious batch
1 T vanilla
3 cups grated zucchini
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 t orange extract or 1 T orange zest
4 1/2 cups flour (I may just use 4 cups flour and 1/2 cup cocoa powder for disguise)
3/8 t baking powder
1 1/2 t baking soda

Combine all ingredients (except zucchini and chocolate chips) in a large bowl. Mix well; fold in zucchini and chocolate.  Divide evenly between 3 well-greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 50-60minutes.  (test for doneness with a toothpick)  You could make muffins too...about 30minutes in the oven. Cool completely before slicing and enjoying.
