Who doesn’t love a way of eating chocolate that can be labeled as “healthy”?
These zucchini brownies are a healthier way, (no eggs and no butter) of indulging in dessert. Even though they still contain sugar, you also reap the benefits of eating zucchini, hidden within all that chocolate goodness.
One benefit of country living is scoring produce for super cheap. Last weekend I procured two monster zucchini. They were the largest zucchini I ever saw. They were each about the length of my forearm and the width of my calf. Actually that sounds a bit awkward. Anyways, they were huge.
I decided to experiment with one of the zucchini and make a chocolate version of zucchini bread, realizing that they are actually zucchini brownies. They turned out moist, delicious, and not tasting of zucchini at all.
Here is the easy recipe:
- 1 large zucchini
- 1/4 cut coconut oil
- 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- dash of salt
- handful of chocolate chips
