    These are further proof that you don't need eggs for great baked goods. I was a little concerned about the crumbliness of the batter (more like cookie dough), but once the zucchini was mixed in, everything came together. I finely shredded my zucchini and drained it to take some of the moisture out. The brownies came out perfect and super tasty!

    This recipe also lends well to subbing 1/2 whole wheat flour. If you aren't used to whole wheat in sweet baked goods, it DOES change the texture and taste. I've also added sprouted wheat berries to a similar recipe with fantastic results. As others have said, mix wet and dry separately. I also recommend adding a bit of applesauce for added chew.

    Great!! We absolutely loved these, and have made them many times now. The crust that develops on top, and the warm moist centre - to die for. These are great on their own or a la mode, soy for the vegans out there. UPDATE: These are best with slightly less sugar (1 1/4 cup), and if you follow krazyspazmo's suggestion of letting the zucchini, oil, sugar, and vanilla sit before combining them with the dry ingredients.

    I've made these before and the batter doesn't get as crumbly if you mix all the dry ingredients except the sugar in one bowl.. and then all the wet ingredients, zucchini, and sugar in another. Let the zucchini/wet ingredient/sugar mixture sit for a couple minutes, and it will get syrupy like when you add sugar to strawberries. THEN combine the two. :) Makes all the difference in the world! I also put vegan dark chocolate chips on top of mine :)
