  • 2 Tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup + 3 Tbsp milk of your choice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • stevia to taste
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 loose cup finely grated zucchini
  • chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix the oil, applesauce, milk, vanilla, and molasses. I add in about 15-20 drops of liquid stevia as well here.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cocoa, salt, sugar).
  • Add the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients, along with the zucchini. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into a well-oiled 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  • Top with chocolate, if desired.
  • Bake 14-18 minutes, just until the top feels 'springy' to the touch. DON'T overbake! These, in fact, are better UNDERbaked.
  • Cool about ten minutes prior to cutting for best results.
