Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Jessica Seinfeld wrote a cookbook that encourages sneaking vegetables into whatever food you can. I made this recipe to see how zucchini in brownies tasted. It was good but very rich. This makes an ideal dessert for when company comes over and would be very tasty served with vanilla ice cream.

  • 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
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup dark chocolate baking chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a 13x9 inch pan or spray with cooking spray.
  3. 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 chocolate chips. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until knife cut into center of brownies comes out cleanly.
