Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Brownies

Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp water
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons flaxmeal
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup natural sweetener
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, and line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 6 ingredients and let sit at least 5 minutes. (Tip: shred zucchini in a food processor for fine shreds.)
  3. Combine all other ingredients in a separate bowl, and stir very well. Pour wet into dry, stir until evenly mixed, then pour into the baking dish.
  4. Using a full sheet of parchment or wax paper, press down very firmly until the brownie batter evenly covers the pan. Bake 19-20 minutes, then pat down hard with a pancake spatula or another sheet of parchment.
  5. Let zucchini brownies sit 15 minutes before trying to cut into squares, and if at all possible wait until the next day to eat them.
