My granny always had so much leftover zucchini in her garden, it was a challenge to use it all. I invented this recipe when she gifted me a huge bag of zucchini one summer fresh from her garden. Zucchini is very high in water and fiber content. It?s the perfect way to moisten brownies without adding extra fat and get extra fiber in your diet.

Recipe Ingredients for Double Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 cup splenda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cups oat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini

Recipe Directions for Double Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 88-inch baking pan with cooking spray and sprinkle with the one tablespoon of flour. Shake the pan until the flour evenly coats the inside of the pan. Place chocolate in an ovenproof dish and place in the oven, 5-6 minutes until just melted. Or place chocolate in microwave (30 seconds to 1 minute) until melted. Cool slightly.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oil, egg white, sugar, vanilla and melted chocolate until well blended. Stir in the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Fold in the zucchini and nuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the pan. Cool completely in the pan and cut into squares. Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
