Cakey and fudgy and oh so good. And GUILT FREE! Besides a small amount of maple syrup there is NO added refined sugar.
Zucchini boasts a good amount of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. So you can eat a brownie and boost your health. No brainer!
2 cups pureed zucchini (peel and puree in a food processor, no need to cook first)
1 chia egg
1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1 1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 handful of dark chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand, as they are dairy, soy, and nut free)
- Peel and puree zucchini in food processor.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a large bowl add everything except the chocolate chips and mix well.
- Spoon batter into a prepared 8×8 baking dish. I like to grease mine with a little coconut oil.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake for 20-25 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
