Recipe Notes

  • If desired, top these brownies with chocolate frosting or chocolate ganache.
  • The batter will be thick, but will loosen up with the moisture from the grated zucchini. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Mist with nonstock cooking spray.
  2. Stir together the vegetable oil, sugar, eggs, water and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
  3. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add this mixture to the wet mixture.
  4. Stir in the grated zucchini until well combined. (Batter will be thick.) Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 25 minutes or until they just start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove and cool before cutting into squares.

Zucchini is so moist, which makes them a great addition to brownies, cakes and breads. Love this yummy recipe!
Is the flour self rising or all purpose? I am assuming all purpose. I love zucchini recipes.
