Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

TheHealthNut's picture
This is an amazing dessert. All of the taste of regular brownies but with a very original texture that the zucchini gives it. It is amazing when it is fresh out of the oven but just as good a couple of hours later at room temperature...mmmmmmmmm....You don't need any icing on these, they are perfect on their own...

Story
I have so many zucchinis in my organic garden, I just had to find an original recipe that would taste awesome!!! Everyone has a hard time believing that there is actually zucchini in these...so delicious!!
How about a dessert with some green tea in the winter? The this brownie with the zucchini incorporated is the best thing to have! Nutritious and hardly takes 5 minutes to make!
