Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Blondies

It’s the end of August, and everyone (other than me) is figuring out what to do with the giant, overlarge zucchini they’ve magically grown in their gardens.  As we’ve previously discussed, this is not a problem I have; however, I do happen to love zucchini and have gotten into the habit of tucking it into whatever I can.


Some examples of late:

  • Tropical Stovetop Oatmeal: cooking together coconut milk, whole milk, 1/2  of a sliced banana and shredded zucchini; top with cubed mango and toasted coconut flakes.
  • Savory Steel Cut Oats – thanks to this superfun podcast – 1/4 cup steel cut oats, shredded zucchini, 3/4 cup broth in an instant pot for 4 minutes, then natural release. Topped with chopped up faux sausage.
  • This way, all the time
  • And trying out this tonight!


Obviously – coming up with more ways to fold zucchini into dessert was a reasonable next step. Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Blondies are somewhere in-between a healthier dessert and a zucchini bread. Incorporating the shredded zucchini adds moisture, which means we getto cut down on the butter; the result is a light and springy dessert, studded with rich chocolate chunks and packed with zucchini goodness.
