Frosted zucchini brownies feature a decadent chocolate flavor and rich, creamy frosting. And guess what? You can’t taste zucchini in this brownie recipe!
I know, I know. You’re wondering how in the heck chocolate brownies made with shredded zucchini could be any good. It sounds way too healthy to taste like real brownies, but believe you me, they do.
In fact, these frosted zucchini brownies are quite possibly my favorite homemade brownie recipe. They’re right up there with my favorite peanut butter swirl brownies, German chocolate caramel brownies, and easy brookies.
I’d like to think zucchini brownies are super healthy due to the recipe calling for a vegetable among the list of ingredients. But if you like healthy brownies, you should probably reach for these gluten-free fudgy flourless chocolate brownies.
Zucchini brownie batter is nice and thick, making the baked brownies extra dense and chewy. You can’t even taste the zucchini in there! And not tasting veggies is my favorite way to eat them.
They remind me of these yummy double chocolate zucchini muffins—full of zucchini but not full of zucchini flavor!
The creamy chocolate frosting pairs perfectly with the rich, chocolaty brownies. The flavor reminds me of the frosting on my mom’s Texas sheet cake, and I could eat that frosting by the bowlful.
Think of all that gardne-fresh zucchini about to explode in your backyard. I imagine it would love nothing more than for you to pick it, shred it, and bake it into a batch of frosted zucchini brownies.
And I bet your family and neighbors would love it if you served those brownies at your next neighborhood get-together.
Or you can serve a brownie or two to yourself as a late-night snack!
HS tip: I use the small-sized grater on my favorite KitchenAid box grater so the zucchini is more finely shredded (and less noticeable).
