Zucchini Brownies!

Another allrecipes winner.  They are so delicious and moist.  The recipe includes a frosting which I skipped because the goal for me was to make a sweet dessert more healthy.  They are really SO.GOOD.  Original recipe here.  My version below.

1/2 cup organic canola 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 (gently drained)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
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. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife comes out clean when inserted.

  1. This looks amazing, Holly!
    Do you think I could swap in mashed bananas or applesauce for the oil? Hmm...I may have to try it out!
