Fudgy Zucchini Brownies

Summer zucchini is LIFE here my friends! It is just overflowing at our local market and I love it. I can just eat it roasted or grilled, but it is also so wonderful in baking. I’ve already made a delectable zucchini bread with it and even made fluffy, sweet zucchini bread pancakes with it. This time though, we are going even more decadent with these fudgy zucchini brownies. You would NEVER know there is a veggie hidden in these babies. Best of all, they are really simple to make.

The batter didn’t require any special equipment. I just whisked the dry ingredients together, and stirred the oil and sugar together thoroughly. Then I just thoroughly stirred the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. It was really crumbly but don’t worry. Once I stirred in the zucchini, the moisture from it turned it into a really thick, lovely batter.
Then I just scooped that batter into my greased 8 x 8 pan and smoothed it out into an even layer with a spoon. It was craggy and that’s ok!
After 30 minutes, the brownies were baked to perfection. I inserted a toothpick in the center just to be completely sure! The edges were just starting to crisp up, but I could tell they were still just gooey enough in the center.

That was all there was to it! I let the tray cool completely before I cut them into 16 equal squares. Like I said, you would never, ever belief there was a veggie in these. The sweetness of the zucchini actually enhanced the chocolate so beautifully and kept the brownies from drying out. These were such a fun way to use up that gorgeous zucchini and I hope you all love them too! xoxo

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 whole zucchini grated
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and spray an 8 x 8 baking dish well with cooking spray. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a bowl. In another large mixing bowl, stir the sugar, oil and vanilla together thoroughly. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until you have a crumbly, almost dry mixture. This is normal. Then stir in the zucchini until the batter starts to soften and become thick. Transfer the batter to the baking dish and make sure it is in an even layer. Bake the tray for about 30 minutes, until the edges just start to crisp and the center is baked through. Let them cool completely for an hour, then cut and serve! Enjoy!!

  3. The kids and I make Zucchini muffins when it’s chilly outside. I have never thought of making brownies. I have to give your recipe a try.

  4. I’m gonna make this tomorrow morning and I can’t wait! Just one simple question. How much does the zucchini weigh? One in mu fridge is so huge so I might have to use part of it.
