- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder

- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, place rack in the middle; coat an 20cm square baking dish with vegetable oil; set aside.
- Place the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk to aerate and combine.
- Place the applesauce, maple syrup, plant based milk, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk to combine;
- Add the flour mixture and fold with a rubber spatula until just combined (do not over mix)
- Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Scrape the batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth out the top.
- Bake in the oven for about 35 mins or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean
