Ingredients

    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups shredded zucchini
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    Frosting:
    6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 cup butter
    2 cups powdered sugar
    1/4 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the zucchini and walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies spring back when gently touched. To make the frosting, melt together the 6 tablespoons of cocoa and butter; set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, blend together the powdered sugar, milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies before cutting into squares.
