preheat oven to 350 degrees. prep your baking dish (spray, flour or line with parchment – this is pretty sticky stuff) i used a 9×9 inch stoneware dish.
combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. add the eggs and beat for a minute or so then add the applesauce and mix well. fold in the shredded zucchini and coconut. pour the batter into your prepared baking dish.
bake for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the cake while it is still hot. wait a minute or two then spread the melted chocolate over the cake. let cake cool (if you can wait!) completely and serve.
