Apple Zucchini Chocolate Chip Walnut Bread

One of my favorite times of the year, plenty of zucchini and apples..
this is a sweet bread with nuts and chocolate you will love!

1 cup finely grated zucchini 
1 cup grated McIntosh apple, peeled and cored
1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 cup canola oil
3 large eggs
1 1/2  teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups plus 1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
A can of non stick spray
parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat 2 - loaf pans with nonstick spray. Line the pans with parchment paper and spray the paper.
Combine the zucchini, apple, brown sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla extract in bowl and mix well. Add  the 3 cups flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg to the bowl and blending evenly. 

TIP: Shake the nuts and chips with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon flour to coat and prevent them from sinking. Gently stir in the chocolate chips,  nuts and add the extract.

Divide the batter into the 2 loaf pans.  Bake until a toothpick in the middle comes clean out of each loaf, around 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the breads to a wooden board or wire rack to cool.
