Entertaining Kitchen – Mother/Daughter Series 2015 – Zucchini Brownies

There are two things I really love in the food world.  Zucchini and Brownies!  I was flipping through my Pink Tractor magazine and found a recipe that called for both.  Luella Fischer-Gregory shared her recipe in this months edition.  It looks as though her blog, Luella’s Front Porch has a great collection of recipes to try! Be sure to go and check her out!  I couldn’t find this recipe to directly send you too so it is below.

These brownie were delicious, not as sweet as others. I did not make the frosting, but next time I will. That will add the sweetness I was looking for I think. I used up the last of my zucchini from our garden last year.

I invite you try the recipe and let us know how you enjoyed it!  Before long we will have lots of zucchini to use up! This is a great recipe to do just that!

Thanks for stopping by!
