Zucchini Brownies

Like everyone else who plants a zucchini plant or two (those are the crazy ones-like us!) Have to love all those great zucchini jokes that are out there. I loved this one because it hits close to home.
Where I grew up, the only time you ever locked your doors was when the zucchini ripened, so the neighbours couldn't "donate" theirs onto your porch. ~ Hermit
Sounds familiar to anyone else?

We love zucchini cookies, cakes, breads, fried, baked etc. This simple and quick Zucchini Brownie recipe comes from my sister Kelly's Kitchen. I have to admit I have eaten several to many of these moist and chocolaty treats every time I make them.

2 cups peeled and shredded Zucchini
1/2 cup cooking oil
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup coco powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2-1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Mix zucchini, oil, vanilla, then add all dry ingredients. DO NOT USE A MIXER, hand stir!. Pour in to a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

**If you double the batch it feels a large cookie/sheet cake pan.
