Cinnamon Zucchini Brownies #SundaySupper

Grab your hat and bag! This week’s Sunday Supper is going places!

cinnamon zucchini brownies
We’re talking about taking our meals on the go! Lunchboxes, brown bags, coolers and thermal containers, you name it. If its portable, bring it along.

I remember brown bagging it when I was in grade school. I usually had a spiced ham sandwich on white bread, dry, an apple or some kind of fruit or a TastyKake and a nickel for the milk machine. Lunch bell would ring and we’d line up single file and parade through the cloakroom and grab our bag or lunchbox.
Okay did I lose you yet? What’s a milk machine and cloakroom? Sorry, blame Liz from That Skinny Chick Can Bake for transporting me back in time for a minute! Thanks Liz for hosting and reminding me of a good childhood memory.
My guy still packs his lunch for work. He seldom deviates from fresh fruit, raw veggies, a yogurt and some cinnamon graham crackers. Maybe I can get him to switch his cinnamon crackers for these cinnamon brownies. Hey there are veggies in these too. Win. Win!


Cinnamon Zucchini Brownies



  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients.
Fold dry ingredients into the wet mix. Stir well.

    We had a cloakroom in Kindergarten…I’d forgotten that term! I lived a block away from our elementary school so didn’t start taking lunches till junior high. I would have loved a zucchini brownie back then…heck, I want one now!!!

    My elementary school didn’t have a cloakroom and I don’t remember a milk machine. However, one of these brownies would be a great treat to go in a lunchbox. Love sneaking veggies into cakes and brownies.

    Hi Cindy! I wasn’t able to take my lunch to school because my mother wanted us to have the school lunch program. I always drooled when other kids would bring sweet treats such as these cinnamon-y brownies that you’ve made!
