Zucchini Brownies (from boxed mix)


Did you know you can make Zucchini Brownies using boxed mix? Well you can – should you? Maybe! Lets talk about it!

Anyone growing zucchini has thought to themselves – can I add zucchini to that? Over the weekend, I really wanted some brownies and grabbed a box of mix from the store. I then saw the few zucchini left sitting on the counter and guilt tugged at me. I decided to make zucchini brownies, the quick way – using boxed brownie mix.

How to Make Zucchini Brownies from Mix:

  1. Wash, cut off the ends of the zucchini and shred a medium zucchini with a grater
  2. Prepare box mix according to the directions – we chose the fudgy preparation style!
  3. Fold in the zucchini
  4. Bake according to package directions. I did find mine took about an addition 5-7 minutes due to the added moisture from the zucchini


The result was a very fudgy, moist (yes I said it) brownie. What do I love about a brownie? The crispy top and edges…which were missing. The zucchini adds a ton of moisture. They were a hit with the kids and husband. I really liked them too. Here is why I will make them again – the toddler really gives me a hard time eating anything green. Yet, he loved participating in making these brownies. He enjoyed eating them and he knew there was zucchini in them. I’m hoping that deep down, the next time I serve it for dinner – he’ll at least consider taking a bite willingly?

While it was a tasty treat, and none went to waste – I won’t be making it again when I’m specifically craving a crunchy brownie. But it was a quick and easy way to use up a zucchini and a very yummy treat. I will definitely make them again next year when the zucchinis are in abundance!
