What to Do With All of that Zucchini, Part 2: Zucchini Brownies!

It’s that time of year when the size and number of zucchini you’ve grown are enough to start a softball team!

Instead of going through all of that coordination, wouldn’t you rather eat and enjoy those bat-sized veggies?  After all, that’s why you planted the squash in the first place.

While Zucchini Bread is a super popular way to use lots of this summer squash, there’s another sweet treat you can create.  Whip up these brownies and enjoy your chocolate and vegetables at the same time!

Zucchini Brownies

2 cups flour, any variety.  Oat flour is good and is gluten-free when using gf oats.

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp. salt

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

2 eggs

1/2 cup chopped nuts

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups grated zucchini, yellow or green

1/3 cup vegetable oil

 

Blend flour, sugar, salt, cocoa and soda in bowl.  In a large, separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients then fold dry ingredients into wet, just until blended.

Spread batter in lightly greased 9×13″ pan.  Bake 30 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven.

To really get your zucchini on (and used up!) in one meal, serve these brownies for dessert after a meal of Zucchini Feta Pancakes and side dishes of your choice.

And maybe next year, resist the temptation and add just one summer squash to the garden.
