I was having a craving for brownies this week and my daughter is always asking to bake stuff so I called my mom and asked her for her Zucchini Brownie Recipe since we have been trying to eat healthier.
These Zucchini brownies are awesome, no one would ever know there was a veggie in there! They are very light and more cake-like...so really, I guess it should be called Chocolate Zucchini Cake in my opinion.
Here is the recipe my mom gave me
2 cups zucchini (peel and shred)
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup sugar (I used all brown)
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
Mix zucchini, oil and vanilla together. Add in dry ingredients and mix...do not beat. Add 1 cup nuts if desired. spread in 9x13 inch greased pan. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Batter will be very thick.
I like to garnish the top with a handful of dark chocolate chips before baking.
