OPTIONAL: you can all 1/2 c. chopped pecans, toasted.
Preheat oven 350. Spray a 13 x9 9 pan.
Mix all ingredients except topping. Begin with oil and sugar, beat in eggs and applesauce. Whisk dry ingredients together in another bowl, then fold in and add yogurt blending just until it is all mixed.
BAKE 20 min at 350. Then take out and add chocolate chips, then bake 10-15 min longer.
