Zucchini Brownies

I am actually running out of zucchini because the pestilence that is the squash borer has pretty much destroyed my plants.  But for a final hurrah, I decided to make Zucchini Brownies. The kidlet really liked them.


Zucchini Brownies

1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 T vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups of shredded zucchini

1 cup of flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon baking soda

1 cup of chocolate chips

Preheat oven at 350. Grease an 8 x 8 square pan.

Combine the first five ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the next five. Fold the chips. Pour batter into the pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes.

These are fudgy without being dense. Really good microwaved with some ice cream, chocolate syrup and salty peanuts. Should be kept in the fridge.
