Zucchini Brownies I

May 24, 2011

I made this recipe last May, took pictures, saved them on my computer, and promptly forgot about them.  Until I asked on facebook what are some of your favorite ways to cook zucchini and my friend Keri reminded me of this very recipe.  A recipe that she shared with me last May that I quickly made and then forgot about.  You know that one, duh!

Which, of course, happened to be after I had found a different zucchini brownie recipe that I made and took pictures of.  So now not only do I have one amazing zucchini brownie recipe, I have two.

The recipes are slightly different and both are absolutely delicious. I will share the other recipe tomorrow.

Zucchini Brownies I, as I am calling them, are slightly more cake-like with an airy texture and are melt in your mouth chocolaty.

Ingredients: 2 c flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 c sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 2 c grated zucchini, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts

Shredded zucchini, I shredded a bunch and saved it in my fridge for later use.

I used a cheese grater to grate the zucchini, and did not squeeze drain any excess liquid.

In a large mixing bowl, sift the dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.

I used a strainer and just tap it to sift.

Then in another bowl add the wet ingredients; oil, eggs, zucchini and vanilla. Mix well.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until incorporated.

Fold in the nuts.

Spray a jelly roll pan, mine is a 18 X 13.

And pour and smooth out the brownie batter.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Cut into squares and serve.

Don’t you just love the little green specks of zucchini.

I wouldn’t have thought to add them to brownies, but why not? We add them to muffins and bread. Sounds delicious and chocolate-y!

[…] brownies and you can’t taste it at all.  These brownies are much more brownie like (than Zucchini Brownies I), and the chocolate chips melting into the brownie creates a extra bit of chocolaty […]

Zucchini can possibly mixed with this brownie recipe. It looks good and healthy. It is a great snack for the whole family. Nice blog.
