I added vegetables to our dessert this week. VEGETABLES. In a DESSERT. What, what, what is wrong with me? But honestly, I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile. I’ve been seeing zucchini brownie recipes pinned left and right on Pinterest and rediscovered the one in the Simply in Season cookbook. So I caved and tried them out of pure curiosity. They turned out…satisfying. And oddly good enough flavorwise that I’d probably make them again.

 

 

 

Zucchini Brownies (adapted from Simply in Season; makes 16 pieces in an 8×8 pan)
1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 cups shredded zucchini
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
Semisweet (mini) chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flours, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine egg, sugars, yogurt, oil, vanilla and beat with a fork. Stir zucchini into bowl of dry ingredients, then add bowl of wet ingredients to the zucchini mixture. Stir and add some chocolate chips. Spread into a greased 9×13 pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
