Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Recipe
If theres one thing I know that signifies it is really fall, it's when I make my pumpkin zucchini bread! I've been making this recipe for many years, and I have yet to meet someone who'd doesn't just love it! While I can't technically call it healthy, there are lots of healthy aspects of this delicious treat, and in a season where everything is loaded with sugar, calories and pumpkin, having something that is a little lighter on the waistline is always a good idea! I've been making this recipe for so long, I actually don't remember where I initially found/saw the pumpkin zucchini bread recipe, but I know it's delicious! And today, I'm sharing the recipe with you!
Ingredients:
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup melted butter (substitue 1/2 cup of applesauce for healthier option)
1 Tsp. baking powder
1/2 Tsp salt
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups shredded zucchini
Handful chocolate chips or other topping (optional) I added streusel topping to a few of my mini loaves.

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350°
2. Shred and dry two large zucchinis (I use a cheese grater & remove excess water with cheesecloth or paper towel)
3. Combine sugar and eggs, lightly beat together
4. Add pumpkin, vanilla and butter to wet mixture.
5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.
6. Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture, mixing well.
7. Stir in zucchini and optional add-ins.
8. Fill two greased 9x5in loaf pans. 
9. Bake for 40-50 minutes. (I used mini loaf pans so my cook time is different).
10. Let sit in pans for 10-15 minutes.
11. Move to wire rack to cool.
