Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies

23 Aug

 

These Zucchini Brownies should be called OH MY GOD HEALTHY CHOCOLATE! Because that’s exactly how I felt when I took a bite. The batter if you can call it that, is more like a crumbly mixture until you add in the zucchini, which adds the moisture.

My boyfriend who was a huge skeptic of putting vegetables in desserts was won over from the first bite and then promptly ate half the pan. Enjoy!

Serves 24

Ingredients 

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini

Directions 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the oil, sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla until well blended. Add the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt. Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies spring back when gently touched.

    It is a great way to sneak in vegetables. With the chocolate, you can hardly taste the zucchini.
