I am happy to report that grated zucchini acts much like applesauce, pumpkin, or mashed banana in it's ability to reduce the amount of fat needed in a recipe! These are still not an 80% recipe, but slightly healthier than your basic brownie!
Chocolate Zucchini Brownies
Makes 15 brownies
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
11 oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups shredded zucchini
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 11 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Combine sugar, oil, and flour in a large bowl (mixture will resemble wet sand). Add cocoa, zucchini, and baking soda. Mix until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the brownies are set. Cut brownies into squares and serve.
