Zucchini Brownies

I knew having a garden would pay off. And pay off, it did! These brownies are amazing and since they are full of zucchini, you would be doing your health a disservice NOT to eat them since they are so incredibly healthy. (This is what I tell myself so I can sleep at night). They are moist and very flavourful although a bit more cake-like than brownie-life. If you eat them by themselves, you can taste the zucchini a bit, but that didn't bother me at all.

Zucchini Brownies
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Stir together flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and cocoa.

2. Add beaten egg, applesauce, milk, vanilla and zucchini. Mix until smooth.

3. Add chocolate chips. Stir to combine.

4. Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan.

5. Bake at 350 for , until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve warm topped with cherry sauce and ice cream.

  1. These look awesome. I have a zucchini sitting on my counter right now that I will use for this recipe.

  2. Just two days ago on Twitter I put out an all-call for zucchini brownies. Glad to have found these!

  3. Yummy! Can't wait to give these a try! I love chocolate zucchini cake, so I'm guessing these are mighty tasty.

  4. Wow! I'm so hungry for zucchini brownies with cherry sauce. And so healthy too ;-) Amazing.

  5. Chocolate and zucchini makes me smile! Sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

  6. This sounds so good and your right, they are perfectly healthy! (Wink)
    Thanks for sharing,

  7. This looks like an awesome recipe! I am so excited to try it. However, in step 5 you forgot to put how long the brownies should bake. I looked at other recipes, and they all said 25-30 minutes, so that is what I'm guessing on yours. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. I have to try this one! My kids love Zuc bread and Brownies ;) Thanks for checking out my Blog! Karen B.

  9. I am going to try these! We have had a bountiful garden this year with tons of zucchini. I wonder if lessening the amount of baking powder would make these more gooey?
