Zucchini Brownies

With the abundance of zucchini in many gardens this time of the year, I decided to see what to do with it besides the typical casseroles. There are different versions of zucchini brownies; this is the one I chose. I was definitely pleased, and the frosting was yummy!


1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 c. shredded zucchini
1/2 c. walnuts or pecans


6 T. cocoa
1/4 c. margarine
2 c. confectioners' sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/2 t. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 9x13 baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, eggs, and 2 t. vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, 1/2 c. cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the zucchini and nuts. Spread evenly into the pan. Bake for 25-30 mins.

To make the frosting, melt together the 6 T. cocoa and margarine; set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, blend together the confectioners' sugar. milk, and 1/2 t. vanilla. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies. Cut into squares to serve.

Verse 1
Let the children sing a song of liberation
The God of our salvation set us free
Death, where is thy sting? The curse of sin is broken
The empty tomb stands open, come and see

He's alive, alive, alive. Hallelujah!
Alive! Praise and glory to the Lamb.
He's alive, alive, alive. Hallelujah!
Alive forever. Amen

Verse 2
Let my heart sing out, for Christ, the One and only
So powerful and holy rescued me
Death won't hurt me now because He has redeemed me
No grave will ever keep me from my King

Worthy is the Lamb, worthy of our praise
Worthy is the One who has overcome the grave
Let the people dance, let the people sing
Worthy is the mighty King.

You are worthy. Amen!
