There are two things I really love in the food world. Zucchini and Brownies! I was flipping through my Pink Tractor magazine and found a recipe that called for both. Luella Fischer-Gregory shared her recipe in this months edition. It looks as though her blog, Luella's Front Porch has a great collection of recipes to try! Be sure to go and check her out! I couldn't find this recipe to directly send you too so it is below.
These brownie were delicious, not as sweet as others. I did not make the frosting, but next time I will. That will add the sweetness I was looking for I think. I used up the last of my zucchini from our garden last year.
I invite you try the recipe and let us know how you enjoyed it! Before long we will have lots of zucchini to use up! This is a great recipe to do just that!
Thanks for stopping by!
