I made a big batch of these, again, last night. MY daughter wanted to take some to her step-sister, who is a vegan. I realized that the brownies, without the frosting, are totally vegan! If someone wanted frosting, they could easily substitute soy or almond milk. I'd like to see this listed with vegan recipes, with a note about substitutions for the milk in the frosting.
For those who posted that they followed the recipe but came out with something dry, I have a few ideas about what might have happened. If the shreds of zucchini are too big, the abundant water in them might not come out of it in time to mix with the dry ingredients. Smaller shreds would probably work better, or you could finely chop the zucchini in a food processor. Or, add the salt to the zucchini and let it stand for a few minutes before adding other ingredients. The salt will pull the moisture out of the cells.
Another thing might be the zucchini you are using. Very large zucchinis, and sometimes smaller ones that haven't been grown with adequate water, should have the seeds and the pulp from the center removed. Removing the skin with a regular potato peeler is a good idea, too. Tough skin takes up space in a measuring cup, without adding needed moisture. If you want to use the skin and seeds for extra fiber, use a little more zucchini or add a tablespoon or two of water.
