Thanks to Linda Elder who reminded us how delicious this is at our recent Pumpkin Party! 1 1/2 c. shredded, raw summer squash (about 1 lg. or 2 sm. Eatwell zukes)

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 cup applesauce (no sugar added)

1/2 c. un-sweetened cocoa powder, sifted

1/2 c. granulated white sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 c.  light brown sugar

1/4 tsp. baking powder

2 lg. eggs

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chip

Preheat oven to 350F. Place rack in the center of the oven. Grease 9 x 5 x 3 in. loaf pan. Set aside. Grate zucchini. Set aside. In a lg. bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. Beat the applesauce, sugars, eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended (about 2 mins). Fold in the grated zucchini. Add the flour mixture, beating just until combined. Fold in the choc. chips. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the bread has risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55-65 min. Place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 min., then remove the bread from the pan and cool completely
