Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Posted by on Sat, August 9th, 2014 at 11:00 am

Dessert is fantastic. Don’t believe us? Try some!  Today’s DIY gives us a healthier option for dessert! It comes from Dolly55 of London, Ontario!

My recipe is Chocolate Zucchini brownies. These are a low-fat alternative to normal brownies, but taste just as delicious! Don’t let the Zucchini part throw you off – they are chocolaty and will satisfy your chocolate craving without making you regret it later.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup flour (we used white/whole wheat, but any will do)
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 pan (we used glass).
  2. In large bowl mix eggs, vanilla, sugar and applesauce until smooth.
  3. In medium bowl mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt until there are no clumps.
  4. Add dry ingredients from medium bowl into larger bowl with wet ingredients. – Do not over mix
  5. Fold in zucchini and chocolate chips.
  6. Put in glass dish – spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 35 minutes. Once done place glass dish on cooling rack for 20 minutes. (It can stay in this container if you have a lid for it and best stored in the refrigerator).

These look pretty spectacular! Thanks for sending!
