Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

A friend of mine at work gave me this recipe last month and I finally had a few minutes yesterday morning to try it out! I must say very, very YUMMY!! My grandson Dominick (15 months) loved it!
Check out my old time mixer. My mom's friend Peggy Gorman gave me this mixer years and years ago. She had it stored in her garage and gave it to my mom to give to me. I have used it for years, I think I received it sometime in the 1970's! I dropped and broke the original mixing bowl a few years ago......I was so bummed! Oh my gosh.....just how old am I?????
The recipe calls for (2) 9 by 5 inch loaf pans........I used 4 mini loaf pans instead.

Here's the recipe:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped pecans (I used 1 1/2 cups)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Grease (2) 9 by 5 inch loaft pans or (4) mini loaf pans ( I used a spray oil)
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, spices and baking soda (set aside)
In a large bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar, and continue beating until well blended. Stir in oil, vanilla, zucchini, pecans, chocolate chips. Stir in sifted ingredients. Pour into prepared loaf pans.
Bake for about 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove loaves from pans after about 5 minutes and cool. Chill before slicing.
