There are times when you really want chocolate, and you just have to have something super rich and chocolatey! Next time you have a chocolate craving, try this Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownie recipe! These brownies looks absolutely delicious! With the nice rich and moist brownie and the nice thick layer of chocolate frosting with walnuts as a topping. Make these and you will be in brownie heaven and in no time at all, since this great recipe also only takes a short time to make!

Monica, from The Yummy Life food blog, decided to take on making a batch of zucchini brownies after her hubby brought home a huge zucchini. She was disappointed in the other brownie recipes on the internet because they were all packed with other unhealthy ingredients, which totally misses the point of making it healthier by using zucchini as an ingredient for the moisture of the brownies. So she experimented herself in her own kitchen about how to make this recipe a bit healthier.

Monica used less sugar, and used whole wheat flour instead of white flour, she also didn't add eggs in, which makes it able to be a vegan cake, The zucchini adds a lot of moisture, but you still need some oil, so she just used some coconut oil which is really good for you. She also used dark cocoa powder which has been processed less than normal cocoa powder. These brownies although having zucchini in them have no trace of a zucchini taste. Zucchini is great for that, because it basically just takes on whatever flavours are added to it or that it is added to. These brownies look incredible! Just add some vanilla ice cream and make it a brownie Sunday with some more chocolate sauce or maybe some caramel sauce! Wouldn't that be decadent!? Try it out for yourself!
