The great thing about these brownies is that you cannot taste the zucchini. They look like flakes of coconut, but don’t inhibit the delectable brownie taste. They are delightfully fudgey and the zucchini makes these brownies incredibly moist. Plus with whole wheat flour and no sugar (thank you honey!), you don’t have to feel so guilty about eating them 😉
3/4 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1 tbs vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 tbs cocoa powder
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, broken into small pieces
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 small zucchini, shredded (about 1 cup)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl combine the eggs, shredded zucchini and vanilla. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine the chocolate, honey and oil. Stir constantly over low heat. Once the chocolate is melted, add to the zucchini mixture. Stir to combine.
Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Mix until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips and place in a 9×9-inch baking pan lined with parchment. The mixture will be thick, so evenly distribute through the pan with a spatula or wooden spoon.
Bake for 20-25 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (be careful not to hit a chocolate chip!). Let cool in the pan. Once cool, use parchment to remove from pan and cut into pieces on a cutting board.
