Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a jelly roll pan.
  2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended, then beat in the vanilla extract with the last egg. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the zucchini; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, chocolate chips, and walnuts on top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 25 to 30 minutes.

I made these brownies without changing anything except the topping (I omitted the sugar and just used 1.5c of chocolate chips), and they were perfect! I would consider them more of a cake than a brownie though. They are so delicious (you would never know there was zucchini in these!), we even ate them for breakfast! *I did bake them in a 13x9x2 dish, instead of a jelly roll pan, which probably just made them thicker. It baked at 350 for 30 minutes.

LOVE IT! I've tried many and always ended up too cake-y (in defense of the recipes, I've also tried to substitute applesauce which I've learned changes the texture. They were moist and chewy. My husband said "these are REALLY good" and he mocks anything sweet with vegetables in it.

Good flavor. After tasting it, found it to taste much like my mother's sheet cake, so decided to add the frosting that would be on her sheet cake. My family loved it with the frosting.
