Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Brownies
Serves: 12
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (I use the smaller-sized grater)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 6 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.
  2. Mix oil, sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl until well blended.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into sugar mixture until thoroughly combined. Fold in zucchini and walnuts. (Batter will appear dry at first but will become more wet as you mix.)
  4. Spread evenly into prepared pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until brownies spring back when gently touched. Cool completely before frosting.
  1. Melt cocoa and butter in a small pan; set aside to cool.
  2. Blend powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir in cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies before serving.
