Have a bumper crop of zucchini this year?
Heck yeah, zucchini brownies are calling your name!
This recipe is easy peasy and requires no milk or egg. BAM!
Here’s another fun way to use up your zucchini harvest…
dairy-free, egg-free zucchini brownies.
That’s right, simple basic ingredients and delicious brownies.
The hardest part will be shredding the zucchini.
But it’s so worth it. Trust me.
Do you kids love eating zucchini?
That’s why I’ve been sneaking garden zucchini into baked goods for years.
No shame in my game!
Sneak in those veggies, mama.
This recipe makes the most delicious moist and cakey brownies.
And they taste especially rich with frosting.
Yep, I just went there, lol.
Do these brownies taste like zucchini?
Nope. Not one bit.
I promise your kids and company will happily eat these.
Even picky toddlers, woohoo!

Do I Squeeze Water Out of the Zucchini?
I loved getting this question.
When zucchini is shredded for recipes, it does hold a lot of water.
And that much liquid COULD be too much for the zucchini recipe you’re using.
So oftentimes shredded zucchini recipes will require you to first squeeze the water out in paper towels before cooking or baking with it.
I definitely squeeze the water out in our zucchini bread and zucchini cake fritters recipes.
And I used to wring out the water with this zucchini brownie recipe, too.
But I remember them coming out pretty dry.
So this last time I made the brownies, I did not squeeze out the water.
And guess what.
My kids and brownie picky husband all said they are the best brownie we’ve ever made.
By not wringing out the shredded zucchini for this brownie recipe,
we had the perfect fudgy AND cakey brownies!
I can’t even explain how it emulated both textures at the same time.
But it did. And I know you will love it as much as we did!
So to reiterate, you’re off the hook.
No need to drain the shredded zucchini in this recipe!
See the perfection?!

HOW TO MAKE ZUCCHINI BROWNIES
Grease baking dish.
Mix together oil, sugar, vanilla, and shredded zucchini.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
Mix both the wet and dry ingredients together.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
If batter is too dry, add 1 Tb of water at a time until brownie batter consistency…probably 1-2 Tb.
Bake 20-25 minutes a toothpick comes out clean 1″ from the side. Don’t over bake.
If frosting, wait until the brownies cool.
Otherwise enjoy warm brownies with a side of dairy-free ice cream!
