Chocolate Zucchini Bars

My sister brought these bars on our camping trip. I thought they were amazing... so amazing I made two recipes of them today.

They are so moist and not too sweet. It's a win-win situation.

 Thank you sister!

Chocolate Zucchini Bars

2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together zucchini, sugar and oil.
Add remaining ingredients and stir with spoon, then spread
 into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Whipped Ganache Frosting

 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)

Combine in a small saucepan and heat until chocolate is smooth
and melted. Chill in refrigerator. Whip until peaks form
 and spread on cooled bars.



  1. I just made a batch of these and have to force myself to stay out of the kitchen...two and counting...(and mine are even whole wheat, of course ;-) Thanks for the super simple and delicious recipe. I'm always on the prowl for zucchini camouflage around here!

  2. Yum! I made a batch of these today without the frosting. They were so good!
    The plus: a way to use some zucchini from our garden.

  3. These are amazing!!

  4. My 9 year old grandson and I just made a double batch of these. We are calling them "Secret Agent Brownies" b/c we are sneaking zuchinni in without people knowing. Shhh! Don't tell.
