Sour Cream Zucchini Brownies - TSLC

These Sour Cream Zucchini Brownies are a great way to use up some of that zucchini from the garden.  I have one zucchini plant this summer and it is half as big as my patio and I get two or three zucchini a day! I cannot believe this plant has produced so much.  I have made zucchini bread, fried zucchini, zucchini cake and I guess the cookies will be next on the menu. We love zucchini and these brownies are one of our favorites. This makes a moist, chewy brownie with lots of chocolate flavor.

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup 100 per cent pure cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/3 cups white granulated sugar

3 cups shredded zucchini

1 cup sour cream

8 tablespoons butter or 1/2 cup, melted

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

1/2 to 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and sugar.  Add shredded zucchini, sour cream, butter, eggs, vanilla extract and mix well with a spoon.  Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.  Add your brownie mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  Ovens vary so check to make sure they are done. Enjoy!
