Are brownies healthy? Unfortunately they’re not, despite what many of those highly processed brands might claim or even some food bloggers might say.
So why am I sharing a brownie recipe? Because it’s okay to treat ourselves now and then. While I don’t think healthy brownies exist, I do believe brownies made with real ingredients including whole-wheat flour are better for us. And with loads of zucchini coming out of home gardens and farmers markets, and Labor Day celebrations around the corner, I thought it’d be a great time to share my Rich and Moist Zucchini Fudge Brownies recipe. Yes! Zucchini Fudge Brownies!
Now hold on! Don’t close this window. I promise you that your kids won’t have any idea there’s zucchini in these brownies. These simply taste too good! So give these babies a try and see if you can sneak some veggies past your family.Print
Kitchen Tips and Resources:
- A good food processor makes mixing up these brownies super easy! If you don’t have one, I love my Cuisinart!
- If you’ve never baked with parchment paper, you should definitely give it a try. It’s so simple to use, and it makes lifting these brownies out of the pan super easy. Here’s the unbleached, Green Seal Certified parchment paper that I use.
- Coffee can add some really delicious, subtle flavor when you’re baking with chocolate. So even if you’re not a coffee fan, I highly recommend you add in some espresso or coffee powder.
