Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I got this recipe out of my Family Circle magazine and I love it! It is a great snack and I have changed a few things to make this actually healthy, so you can eat it anytime!!

Snack bread or....
muffins, this recipe is so good!! Muffins are great to put in the diaper bag for an afternoon snack for you or your kids!

4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup soft butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Heat oven to 350. In medium bowl blend flour, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon and slat. Set aside. Stir together milk and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. In large bowl, beat butter, applesauce, and sugar on medium speed for a couple minutes until smooth. Add egg whites and vanilla. Beat until combined. Add milk mixture and beat well.
