Sea Salt Zucchini Brownies

The summer is winding down.  Well, sort-of.  We are still hovering around 100 degree highs around here but the extended forecast looks very fall-like with a high in the 70’s on Saturday.  I’m ready for it.  After two weekends in a row of crazy temps and being outside in those crazy temps, I’m ready for a break.

But I’m not ready for it without a few last bites of summer.  I don’t know about you but it seems like everyone I know who grew zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, etc. this summer had a huge crop.  I didn’t grow any of my own but I was lucky enough to benefit from a lot of hard work by my coworkers and friends.  Garden-fresh zucchini doesn’t even begin to compare to off-season but I had a lot to use up quickly.

So why not sneak it in some sea salt fudge brownies and call it a day?  A great way to use up some extra zucchini and I’ll never turn down an excuse to make brownies!

    I love the sea salt!! These look so chocolatey and perfect! Plus, the zucchini totally makes them a healthy dessert, which means having 2 or 3 is no big deal! Yes!

    Fabulous brownie recipe, Cassie! A great way to use fresh late summer zucchini from the garden. The sea salt addition? Brilliant! Thanks for sharing, m’lady. Pinning!

    Im clinging to summer like that kid in Despicable Me clung to that fluffy stuffed animal. It can’t be over, it can’t get cold, I’m not ready, oh brownies… These look awesome.

    Yum! I’m so ready for fall, too, but I have a boatload of zucchini to get rid of. Chocolate? Yes, please! 🙂

    It was 106 yesterday where I am. But you know, I’m ok with it. I lived in such cold climate for so long, that I’ve built up a huge tolerance for hot temperatures. And honestly, I wish summer never ended. My garden squash and tomatoes did not do well this year at all. I think Paul (my Paul) used a bad soil. So disappointing. But I can still buy zucchini and make these. Holy yum!

    I do am still enduring 100 degree weather so the thought of pumpkin is so strange to me. I can get behind apple recipes but I am definitely more so still on the summer wavelength. I wish I had a garden to be using up summer produce from it, but all I have is a pot of basil. I’ll just have to go to the store and buy some zucchini!

    I’ve been seeing zucchini baked goods making their way around the blogging world, and your brownies look exceptionally fudgy. Not to mention, you added sea salt which makes me love them even more:)

    Joanne — September 10, 2013 @ 9:31 pm

    Excess zucchini is never a bad thing! Especially if these brownies can be made out of them! They look absurdly good.

    Christina @ Sweet Pea's Kitchen — September 10, 2013 @ 9:36 pm

    These look so rich and fudgy! I just love that they have zucchini in them too…that means you can have two, right? 😉

    What a great way to sneak in some zucchini – Jason would never try this if he knows what’s in it but I’m sure he’ll love it if I don’t tell him zucchini is involved!
