Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder, and whisk well.
In another medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, oil, vanilla extract, both of the sugars and egg until well blended.

Pour the zucchini mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just incorporated and moistened.
Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
Roll about 1 heaping tablespoonful of the dough into a small ball.
Place the powdered sugar onto a plate.
Roll each ball in the powdered sugar.
Place the cookies balls about 1-inch apart on the baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 15 minutes until the top cracks, and the cookies have set.

Transfer the cookies onto the wire rack to cool completely.
