Courgette (Zucchini) Brownies

We have the beginings of a glut of courgettes in the garden so, after a quick search on pinterest, I decided that brownies were the answer - why go savoury when you can make cake!

I used this recipe, and it looked terrible as I put it in the tin, but the brownies are really nice, although I don't think my courgettes were grated finley enough,

there are still large ish green bits in them!

Next on my courgette recipe list is courgette chocolate cake then courgette bread. I might then do a savoury dish :) You can see the recipes on my pinterest board!

Linking to some of these linky parties.


  1. Ooh! These look so wonderful! Nothing like sliding in some veggies in sweets - love that idea. Visiting from the Inspire Me Monday linky party. :)

  2. Thanks - am off to browse your recipe collection as we have a glut of courgettes too.

  3. They look yummy Alison. I had the same problem when I made courgette chocolate cake that they weren't grated fine enough! I need to try again with them more finely grated and feed them to my kids again. What they don't know....!!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!

  7. I've never even heard of courgettes, but these look yummy!!
