Zucchini Brownies

28 Aug

Holy goodness these look good! Not normally a brownie fan, but I am a huge fan of zucchini and also a fan of trying new recipes, so this one is a win.

Zucchini Brownies (Paleo modified)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 small bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups finely shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups nut or coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350 (my go-to temp for pretty much everything). Grease a pan. Mix together applesauce, bananas and honey. Add vanilla and cocoa, mix together and then add everything else, minus the flour. Once it is all mixed together, then add the flour. Bake for about 25 minutes.

I’d like to experiment with this and try to leave out the honey and flour, but am guessing I’d just get some kind of mush as the end result. This might also be good with a little nut butter added in. Original recipe is here.

If you’re still in the mood for more zucchini and chocolate, check out Juli’s Moist Chocolate zucchini Bread¬†from paleomg, too.

Also, here is my collection of recipes for paleo and non-paleo dishes. Enjoy!
