Making your zucchini brownies

So, to start off, I want to make sure that you understand that the zucchini here is what adds that ‘fudgy’ texture and taste to the brownie. It also adds an extra layer of moisture, which can only help to make your brownies even more enjoyable.

Everything can be made using one singular bowl too, which is always nice. However, before you do anything else, it is recommended you get the water out of your zucchinis before moving forward. The water content can be so high that if left within the zucchini, it can make your brownies soggy and unlikely to hold their shape.

Here is an awesome Zucchini Brownies recipe that you can check out. The taste is absolutely sublime, and something that I highly recommend putting in the effort to try on your own.

Whether as a dessert for your calorie-counting self or for the kids to help wean them off a sweet tooth, this is absolutely worth trying out.
