Chocolate Chip Cocoa Bread

I came across a recipe for cocoa bread, and I knew I had to give it a try since I am on a serious quick bread kick. I also thought this bread would be great with chocolate chips folded into the batter. It turned out very tasty! I changed the recipe a bit since I didn’t have wheat flour, and I added a little orange zest for more flavor.
