Double chocolate zucchini brownies are a delicious gluten free and vegan dessert, and a great way to use up that garden zucchini!
If you have a garden, there’s always a point in the summer where you suddenly have wayyyy too many zucchini. You head out to the garden one day, and there’s a couple that are ready, and then a week later, there’s about fifty zucchini that need to be picked.
These double chocolate zucchini brownies work with a variety of gluten free flour blends. However, the texture will vary slightly with different brands. If the batter is too thick, add a bit more water. Different flour blends soak up moisture differently, so if your batter is too thick or dry, just adjust until it looks like brownie batter.
I have not tried these with nut flour or coconut flour. They may work with almond flour, but they will be a bit heavier, and you may need to adjust the baking time.
If you aren’t gluten free, you can use regular flour or whole wheat flour instead – they will still turn out well!
