Zucchini Brownies

Yield : 9″ x 13″

INGREDIENTS:

2 c flour

½ c unsweetened cocoa powder

¾ c mini chocolate chips

1½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 c zucchini, finely grated

1 Tbls vanilla extract

1¼ c sugar

¼ c applesauce

¼ c vegetable oil

nuts (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in the chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed in the dry ingredients.
  2. Grate the zucchini using a fine grating surface (smaller opening). Combine the applesauce, oil, sugar, vanilla, and shredded zucchini and stir until blended. (You can use all applesauce or all oil if you want. Using all applesauce will affect the texture of the brownie slightly but there are nutritional benefits so your call!)
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined. If you want to add nuts, fold in ½ cup of nuts here. (Walnuts or pecans would be great.) Spread into a lightly greased and cocoa powdered 9×13 baking dish. You will have to spread the batter. No pouring here 🙂 It’s very thick. Bake for 20-25 minutes – do not over bake!
  4. Now you’ve got a couple of options. You can serve the brownies plain – they are super delicious – sweet and rich all on their own. Or you can up the ante and sprinkle on some powdered sugar. This makes them super pretty…
  5. Or you can be a little naughty and spread on some chocolate frosting and maybe sprinkle with some nuts and mini chocolate chips..
