Claire Brown

2 C zucchini, shredded
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/2 C applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x4x2 1/2″ loaf pan.
2. Using a cloth or paper towels, squeeze the zucchini to remove most of the moisture.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the brown sugar, eggs, oil, applesauce and vanilla. Mix to combine. Sit in the zucchini, then fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a tooth pick come out clean.
4. Let cool for 30 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. You must let it cool completely before cutting. The bread will finish cooking during the cool down period
