Zucchini Brownies

These are a must try for all chocolate lovers.  The brownie batter is different than traditional brownies.  It is hard to mix together until you add the zucchini, but even then it is a bit dryer.  You will have your doubts when you mix up the brownie batter if they will turn out...but trust me they will and you will love them!  I got this recipe from all recipes. -Kristin

1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (opt.- I didn't use)
  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Mix together the oil and sugar; let sit.
  • Whisk together all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the oil and sugar.  *This will be a very dry mixture.
  • Stir in the zucchini and chopped nuts if using.
  • Spread and press into greased baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.

6 Tablespoons baking powder
1/4 cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Beat all frosting ingredients together and spread on cooled brownies.
