Ahhhh zucchini season. There are so many amazing things you can do with the vegetable but sneaking it into dessert so that your husband and kids will never know brings me great joy! I’m sharing my recipe for the fudgiest chocolate zucchini brownies you’ll ever make.
The fudgiest chocolate zucchini brownies
- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil or coconut oil
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (approximately 1 large zucchini)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2/3 cups of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- sea salt (optional)
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×8 square pan with nonstick baking spray.
2.) Mix the vegetable oil and sugar together. Add in the vanilla, eggs and shredded zucchini combining well. (The zucchini will be watery. Be sure to leave the water as that will add the moisture).
3.) Stir in cinnamon, cocoa, flour and salt until a brownie batter forms.
4.) Pour the batter into the greased pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
5.) Bake for about 28-30 minutes, will be fudgy. Remove and cool.
6.) Cut into squares.
7.) Optional – sprinkle with sea salt. My fave!!!
Store in an airtight container. I like to keep these in the refrigerator to maintain their consistency.
I love to see what you make! If you re-create any of my recipes, be sure to share and tag me on Instagram @ourtiny_nest.
