Chocolate Zucchini Brownies!

Tomorrow is National Zucchini Day and as you know I did an entire week dedicated to the veggie because I love it so much (almost as much as my favorite veggie asparagus, but nothing will come that close)!  But, what I didn’t give you was a dessert!!!  I can hear you now, yuck…zucchini in my dessert!  I know, I know, I was skeptical at first too, but if you follow the below recipe, I promise you that these brownies will become your go-to and you will be trying to find what other desserts you can add zucchini into!

If you didn’t make this recipe and I didn’t tell you, you could not tell that there is zucchini in the brownies!  While they do not taste exactly like the brownies that I am used to eating, they don’t taste of zucchini.  It is a great way to hide veggies in something sweet!
