Zucchini Brownies

Often in late summer we are gifted with an abundance of zucchini. These brownies are a nice change of pace from the usual zucchini fare. They are good with or without chocolate chips or frosting.

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour (or sugar) a 9x13 inch baking pan.

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the oil, sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the zucchini and walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  2. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies spring back when gently touched.
