Magnificently Moist Mocha Almond Zucchini Brownies

The great thing about these brownies is that it satisfies everyone!  Even those finicky treat-eaters who don't like zucchini will love these because you won't even know that these brownies contain zucchini!

I love the combination of chocolate, coffee & almond!  The coffee flavor in these brownies is subtle so if you prefer a stronger coffee flavor then I suggest frosting these with a coffee frosting (frosting recipe not included - I just dusted with powdered sugar)

Printable Recipe

1/2 cup butter (melted & cooled to lukewarm)
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup cocoa
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1 cup zucchini (rinsed, ends cut off & shredded)
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon boiling water
1 teaspoon instant coffee
1/2 cup slivered almonds (sautéed in a little butter or lightly roasted in the oven)
powdered sugar for dusting
Melt the butter & set aside.  Prepare the zucchini & almonds.  In a cup mix the instant coffee into the boiling water & stir until dissolved - cool until lukewarm. 
In a large mixing bowl whisk the eggs, melted butter, coffee mixture & almond extract just until the yolks are mixed into the liquid.  Add the sugar, cocoa, flours, salt & baking powder and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined.  Lastly, stir in the shredded zucchini & the almonds.  Spray (or butter) a square Pyrex dish and pour in the batter.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).

Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
Dust with powdered sugar, cut, serve & ENJOY!

IMPORTANT:  The brownies must be totally cooled before dusting with powdered sugar (and totally cooled if you are adding frosting)!!
