Taken from "Crazy Plates" cookbook. Sneaky way to get some vegetable into your diet. Who can say no to chocolate?? UPDATE: I made this again today, for dessert. I served it like a cake/brownie with mocha ice cream. Yummy!

I substituted agave nectar for the sugar and left out the applesauce (I didn't have any). I used half all purpose whole wheat flour as well. Very moist loaf. Tasty! Thanks for this recipe.

Very tasty. I used whole wheat flour and subbed half the sugar for Splenda granular and it tasted terrific. Even my skeptical 7 yr old ate it up.

I made these this afternoon for a snack to put in our lunches and they turned out great. I also added in 1/2 walnuts, just to add some more flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
