Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

I had a bounty of summer squash - both from my CSA and from my friend and her husband's prolific garden - plus we were celebrating a friend's (slightly belated) birthday at the beach. So, I decided to bake a chocolate zucchini treat for dessert. So easy...


¾ C sunflower oil
3 T whole milk yogurt
2 eggs
1 C organic granulated sugar
2 t vanilla extract
2 C white whole wheat flour
½  C unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½  t  baking soda
½ C semisweet chocolate chips
2 C zucchini, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter your baking dish, I used an 11” round baking stone, but this should fill a 9”x13” rectangle just as well.

In a large bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients – oil, yogurt, and eggs. Whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Then add in the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda and stir until just moistened. Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes in the preheated oven, until cake springs back when gently touched. When cool, dust with powdered sugar and slice.

Welcome back to this timezone, Danae. And happy belated birthday!!
