    I don't like it when people rate a recipe before they make it:(
    Made these just now, as directed, with fresh cocoa powder and they are tasteless. They also are more like a cake brownie so if you like chocolate and gooey, don't make these. Guess, I will need to frost them..... - 10/31/12

    Excellent. A heavier, dense consistency, which I like a lot. Can't even taste the zucchini, says my non-zucchini eater. I used 1 cup flour/1 cup whole wheat flour. Loved it. - 8/6/12

    These are much more like a cake than a brownie - if you saw the brownie photo on Pintrest, do not be fooled. They are not fudgey, but they are pretty tasty for a low-fat recipe. I added some instant espresso to boost the chocolate flavor. I love that they're vegan too :) - 9/3/12

    So, i tried this recipe and followed it exact, with one exception - I added a little bit of canola oil (Maybe 1/4 a cup) because I was afraid they would be really dry. For a 120 calorie, 2 grams of fat brownie, this was really good. It tasted more like chocolate banana bread, but overall GOOD! - 1/21/13

    I liked these but only used half a cup of sugar and we liked them a lot. We used to do Zuccini Chocolate cake but these are easier keepers. Taste good frozen - 7/30/12

    The first time I made these, I used zucchini that I had frozen from last year-lesson learned! Must use FRESH zucchini! This recipe was delicious once I got it right! The 'boys' and my daughter LOVED it! - 7/31/09

    I seen here that some people find it to cakey. I use 3 baby zucchini and 1 and 1/2 cups flour instead and it turned out fudge like a brownie. - 12/7/13

    If you are following the new WW PointsPlus this would have 3 PointsPlus per serving. Still not bad for a brownie. - 7/4/13

    This was very good! I often play around with recipes to make them as healthy as possible, but this was already pretty good. Unsweetened applesauce, 1/2 the sugar (rapadura), dk cocoa, 1/2 zucchini & 1/2 yellow squash (I used squash I had frozen but drained excess liquid), some dk choc chips. Yummy! - 8/28/12

    They were not very good. Followed the recipe to a T and they would not be a substitute for anything chocolate. They taste more like a sour cream torte type thing... Not a winner IMHO - 10/7/12

    Very yummy! I shredded the zucchini in my food processor, which only has one setting. I thought it wouldn't be fine enough to mix smoothly, but it did. You cannot see or taste the zucchini. I think the taste would depend on the ripeness of the banana. Mine were very ripe, so sweet. Will make again! - 4/2/14

    I think these brownies are delicious. I am a chocolate lover and these are great when I get hit with a craving. I used a little less sugar and a little more applesauce and they turned out great. My family loves them as much as I do so I will definitely be making them again. - 2/5/14

    Good but not great. I used 1c whole wheat flour in place of one of the cups of white flour. I also reduced sugar to 3/4 c and added 18 pkts Splenda. Would try adding 24 pkts next time. 2 ww pts with adjustments. Can sprinkle on 6 T mini choc chips for an additional 1 pt per serving. - 11/18/12

    This is delicious. I used almond flour instead of normal flour and it turned out more of a pudding than a brownie, still tasted good but. Next time I'm going to add an egg instead of the apple sauce to make it less running and more solid - 7/22/13

    Mine came out wonderful! I cut the recipe in half and only used 3/4 cup flour and the texture was perfect. For low-fat I give it 4 stars, but not quite as good as the real thing. - 6/22/14

    Modified the recipe substituting Splenda for sugar and used unsweetened applesauce - came out pretty good, the consistency was not like "normal" brownies, it was more like dense cake or bread. It felt like something was missing, though... might try adding a handful of choc chips next time! - 8/4/09
