Lara Katz: Dreaming Up Delicious


Chocolatey Zucchini Brownies

Delicious and Moist Brownies with Hidden Zucchini

by: Lara Katz

I love the deep chocolate taste of these brownies. Even more so, I love that they have zucchini in them, are made with whole wheat flour, are low in fat and are relatively "good for you!" The cocoa and chocolate chips make them so chocolately you can't even see the shredded zucchini. 


2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups grated zucchini (1 medium zucchini)
1 cup chocolate chips



  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 9" square pan with nonstick baking spray.

  In a large bowl gently whisk eggs. Add in vanilla and sugar and yogurt and mix until combined.

  In a separate medium size bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Gently stir in zucchini and then chocolate chips.

  Pour batter into sprayed pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
