1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease with cooking spray a 9x13 baking pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat sugar and oil until well combined, for about 1 minute. Add the eggs, applesauce and vanilla extract, beating until fully combined.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, whisking well to combine.
