Just in case you need something new to use up the end of your zucchini crop>>> Rich and decadent Zucchini Brownies!! These guys are loaded with chocolate flavor and packed with zucchini, but don’t worry you don’t taste the zucchini. It just keeps the brownies really moist!
So, I have been fighting a cold and have totally lost my voice!! First off who gets a cold in August!!! Isn’t that something you get in the winter time!! I mean it’s been 95+ degrees outside almost everyday!!
I haven’t been sick for a very long time so I can’t complain too much, but come on!!
Since I have no voice to keep anyone in line, my husband and kids have decided to take full advantage. I try to squeak out something and they play all the cards, “What was that mom?” “We don’t know what you are saying.” My son even asked me “Why are you talking so weird”
Oh, the torture!
So, to remedy this problem I need to make some more of these irresistible and insanely chocolate-y zucchini brownies! Surely, that will make my voice come back, right?? 😉
- 4 large eggs
- 2/3 cup butter melted and slightly cooled

- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9 baking pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Slowly add in the butter and vanilla. Stir in the sugars and zucchini until well combined.
Stir in the cocoa powder, all purpose flour, baking soda and salt. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan and smooth to an even layer. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few crumbs. (Do not overbake) Cool completely in pan before cutting.
