This is a great recipe for when you want to make something delicious out of a vegetable. I know that I am not a fan of zucchini, but I really like these brownies.
I got this recipe from crazyforcrust.com
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups of shredded zucchini (This would be one large zucchini or two small smaller zucchinis)
3-5 tablespoons of water
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1/4 cup of melted butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 baking pan and set it aside.
Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together in a medium sized bowl and set it aside.
Use an electric mixer with a paddle attachment and mix the oil, sugar, and vanilla together until well combined. Then add the dry ingredients and stir. Fold in the zucchini and let it sit for a few minutes so the moisture is absorbed by the zucchini. If the mixture is still powdery add up to 5 tablespoons of water, starting with 1. The batter should be thick. Add walnuts and then spread batter into the pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Make the frosting by whisking the butter, cocoa, salt, and powdered sugar. Whisk in the milk and vanilla. Allow the brownies to cool and then spread the frosting over them.
This is the whole recipe and it is very easy to make, and they are so good!
