Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Brownies {recipe}

The weekend before this past one, our neighbor surprised us with 3 HUGE zucchini's from their garden. I immediately knew I had to bake something with them and thought about the typical zucchini bread. But, decided to make a gluten free version of a chocolate zucchini brownie. The result was a fudge-like brownie that we all LOVED - even our 22 month old got excited when I placed little squares of the brownie in-front of her for dessert. I served our brownie pieces with my homemade hot fudge sauce on top and even with whipped cream too one of the nights.

Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Brownies


  • 2 cups gluten free flour of your choice {I used Domata Flour}
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini {liquid squeezed out}


Sift together all the dry ingredients and then mix in the liquid ingredients into the same bowl. Once, combined, pour into a greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Bake for 35 mins at 350F or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool a bit and then serve as brownies are amazing when they're still warm from the oven :)
