It’s that time of year when zucchini gets put into everything. Simply in Season does not disappoint in that department. Speaking of which, I think I’ll still be able to make my end of August deadline. There will be a few marathon cooking sessions the next few weekends, but here’s hopin’!

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2-3 cups zucchini (shredded)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Combine flours, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in zucchini.
2. In a separate bowl, combine egg, sugars, yogurt, oil, and vanilla with a fork. Stir in to zucchini mixture.
3. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake in a 9×13 pan in a preheated 350F oven until a toothpick comes out clean (35-40 minutes).
The Verdict: These are super rich, extremely chocolatey. The zucchini just melts right into the rest of the brownie.
