A Great Way To Use Zucchini!!!

One of the CSA members from "Cooper's Farm" sent in this recipe as it is her favourite way to use zucchini - and after friends and family taste testing them, I think they're our favourite too!!

(And you know they have to be easy for a non-baker like me to make these!!!)



1 cup flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/3 cup cocoa

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 - 3 cups shredded zucchini

1 egg

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup oil

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine flours, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the shredded zucchini
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, sugars, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the zucchini mixture.
  • Spread evenly in a greased 9" x 13" pan (these are lighter than regular brownies and rise more like a cake so a bigger pan is necessary).
  • Sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips (and you can sprinkle nuts on top too if you choose to add these)
  • Bake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre, comes out clean.
  • ENJOY!!
