Every year I end up with tons of zucchini which is great for me because I really love it!  It’s perfect grilled on it’s own or breaded to make oven baked zucchini fries but I do think it’s especially good in baking. It just adds so much moisture and it seems that baked items with zucchini are even BETTER the next day!

These brownies are super moist and delicious… and you’d never know they have zucchini in them (nor will your kids)!  They are rich and chocolatey and just perfectly delicious!  Of course these Zucchini Brownies are great the day they’re made but they’re even better on the second day.

The frosting.. ridiculously yummy and ready in just one minute!One thing you need to know about this recipe is that when you get the flour/sugar combined… just before you add the zucchini the consistency will seem quite dry.  Don’t worry, this is expected.  Stir in the zucchini and your batter will moisten and as the batter bakes the zucchini releases moisture keeping these brownies amazing. You’ll want to make sure you don’t squeeze or drain your zucchini, you want all of the moisture in there (and no peeling required either)!

I top this with a 1 Minute Frosting recipe that I’ve been using for years!  It works perfectly on any cake or brownie recipe that is contained in a pan and requires just a few ingredients you likely already have on hand!

Items you’ll need for this recipe:

* Vanilla Extract * Zucchini * 9 x 13 pan *
