Zucchini and chocolate are an unexpectedly delicious and classic combination. I've used shredded zucchini in chocolate loaf cakes and muffins, so I figured why not add it to brownies! This recipe creates the chewiest brownies that are fudgey, rich, and packed with chocolate.

2 cups grated zucchini
2 large eggs
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 bag of Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips
1 cup sifted flour
Preheat the oven to 350F and line an 8 inch square cake pan with parchment paper.
Whisk together the eggs, shredded zucchini, salt, and powdered sugar until lightly frothy.
Add the melted Enjoy Life chocolate, in 4 parts, whisking until smooth after each addition. Work quickly to avoid curdling the eggs.
Fold in the flour all at once. Mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the lined pan and bake for 28 - 32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I prefer my brownies on the chewy/soft side, but if you like them to have crispier edges then do the full 32 minutes.
Cut the brownies when they have cooled enough to lift the parchment out of the pan.
