I think my zucchini crop has FINALLY slowed down. Which means I only have about 3 more zucchini recipes to share this year, haha!!

My kids went off to school this week, but before they did I made a batch of these Fudgy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies with Chocolate Chip Frosting. They had NO IDEA I snuck some zucchini into this delicious treat.

The brownies are so rich and gooey, but then topped with a frosting, they are irresistible.

A few things to note about these brownies:

  • Mix up all the ingredients for the brownies in one large bowl (no electric mixer required). Let the mixture set in the bowl for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the moisture from the zucchini to distribute. Don’t fret if the batter seems dryer or thicker than a traditional brownie batter. TRUST ME.
  • I use semi-sweet chocolate chips for the batter, and mini chocolate chips for the frosting. I like the smaller sized chips in the frosting, but go with what’s in your pantry.
  • REFRIGERATE. I find these brownies taste best COLD. Plus it makes them easier to cut and serve. I bake them in the evening, and refrigerate them overnight. THEN, the next day I’ll put on the frosting. Or bake in the morning, refrigerate, then frost before dessert. I also STORE them in the refrigerator. It’s not necessary, but again, I LOVE these chilled!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies

Yield: 24 brownies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

One taste of these Fudgy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies with Chocolate Chip Frosting and you'll agree they are the most wonderful brownie you'll ever enjoy!

Ingredients:

For the brownies:

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups finely shredded zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. For the brownies: in a large bowl combine all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. The mixture will be very dry. Allow to sit about 5-10 minutes to let the moisture from the zucchini incorporate into the batter. It's okay if it still remains VERY dry.
  3. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before adding frosting.
  4. For the frosting: beat butter and powdered sugar with vanilla and cream for about 3-5 minutes, until fluffy. Fold in chocolate chips and spread over cooled brownies. Refrigerate and enjoy cold!

    Honestly, the combo of a fudgy brownie and the moisture of the zucchini is such a powerhouse for me. I would not be able to stop eating these, but that’s okay since it’s a veggie with benefits. And that frosting…melting in my seat right now!
