Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup (112 g) vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (256 g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (64 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups finely shredded zucchini (DO NOT DRAIN)
  • 1 ¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a 9×13 pan by greasing it with butter or using baking spray. Don’t forget to line the pan with parchment paper, allowing it to extend up the sides for easy removal later.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the vegetable oil, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until everything is fully incorporated.
  3. Add the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Mix everything until well combined. The batter might appear quite dry at this stage.
  4. Fold in the finely shredded zucchini by hand. Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  5. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chunks, and you’ll notice the batter becoming more moist and delectable. If it still seems a bit dry, give it another 5 minutes of rest and another gentle stir.
  6. Spread the luscious brownie mixture into the prepared pan, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.
  7. Bake the brownies for 25-35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out with some crumbs, but no wet batter. The toothpick test will help ensure they’re perfectly cooked.
