Heck yeah, zucchini brownies are calling your name.

That’s why I’ve been sneaking garden zucchini into baked goods for years.
No shame in my game!
Sneak in those veggies, mama.

DO I SQUEEZE WATER OUT OF THE SHREDDED 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?!
