Less-guilt chocolate cake

I love this cake. I am IN love with this cake. Seriously. Love it. It takes 5 minutes to prepare and 30 to bake. No frosting necessary. Oh, and did I mention that it's 100 calories a slice? That's right. Whole wheat flour, sub applesauce for oil and butter, and why not throw in some zucchini. And dark chocolate chips. Yup, it's glorious.

The recipe comes from Yammie's Noshery. Here's what you need:
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup applesauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Add wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for 30 minutes. Yup, that's it. It's that easy. We topped ours with ice cream, but you could also do frosting (if you wanted) or a good dollop of nutella.
