    The first time I made these, they were so-so, the second time I substituted applesauce for the oil, and added pieces of dark bittersweet chocolate, along with some semi-sweet chocolate chips to make these brownies unbelievable!! The texture was just right for me, thick and fudgy. No frosting needed. An awesome way to cut fat and add nutrition in brownies.  -  19 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were great. I do agree they are more cakey than fudgy, altough the middle was nice and gooey. I even tricked my 6 year old who will not let vegetables past her lips. I peeled the zucchini so she wouldn't see the green, but she still noticed some white flecks. I told her the white was white chocolate chips. I'm going to gradually start adding the peel in. This will definitely be a regular at my house! UPDATE-Okay, I ate one tht was baked yesterday and sat overnight. The brownie's are now fudgy and wonderful! The moisture from the zucchini must soak in more overnight.  -  25 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I loved these brownies. I have made them twice, and while they turned out different both times, both ways were great. I first time I made them I dried the zucchini well and it resulted in a fudgy brownie. The second time my zucchini had more moisture in it and the result was a more cake like brownie. I can't wait to see what I get the third time!  -  08 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
