Cookie Recipe of the Week: Too Many Zucchini? Make Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies are the perfect answer to the perennial question of what to do when your summer garden (or your neighbor’s garden) produces too many zucchinis.

It’s a super-easy cookie recipe and it looks good, thanks to the chocolate chips and nuts you sprinkle on top. That means you save yourself the step of frosting.

The brownies are thick and cake-like. In fact, you can easily convert the recipe to a sheet cake by using a 13 x 9 pan instead of a jelly roll pan.

Extra tip: these brownies freeze well. Make a few extra batches to use up zucchini, store them in airtight containers in the freezer, and label them. You’ll be glad you did when it comes time to make school lunches.

Prep time: about 15 minutes
Bake time: 25-30 minutes, divided
Makes about 35 brownies
