BEST Zucchini Brownies!
Updated: Dec 23, 2020
SO fudgy and a GREAT way to sneak in some veggies! You'll NEVER know there's zucchini in these decadent brownies!
No refined sugar and serious fudgy goodness!! Did I mention there's zucchini in these??
Full recipe in video below!
2 cups zucchini medium size hole shredded (not tightly packed)
1 large egg
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup maple syrup honey or any liquid sweetener
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup flour
Place zucchini in a colander while you are getting other ingredients ready.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a 9x9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add egg, applesauce, maple syrup and pure vanilla extract; whisk to combine.
Add cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; whisk until well mixed.
Give zucchini a gentle squeeze but do not ring out completely, add to a bowl and stir.
Add flour and mix gently until combined.
Transfer batter into prepared baking dish and level with spatula. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until the center is barely jiggly. Do not over bake as brownies will have more of a cake consistency. A toothpick inserted has to come out somewhat not clean. If center is too jiggly bake a bit more - ovens vary.
Remove from the oven and let cool for about an hour
Cut into 8 (or 16) squares.
