5 Delicious Ways You Can Sneak Zucchini Into Dessert This Summer

When a friend of mine first mentioned zucchini brownies to me, I was baffled. My first thought was "why on earth should a vegetable like zucchini be used in anything other than zucchini bread?”

Brownies are glorious all on their own so why add a vegetable? Well, after I tried those brownies, my taste buds converted and I am now officially a fan! No seriously, they tasted unexpectedly amazing and there was no way of telling that a vegetable had been added to the mix.

Similar to using carrots in muffins and such, zucchini can be a fantastic addition to lots of desserts. It is also a sneaky yet creative way to get picky eaters in your family to eat their veggies. Adding zucchini to a recipe is a great way to add moisture without sacrificing taste.
