Hi guys! I’m Kim from My Life According to Pinterest and I’m so excited to be guest posting here at Going Green with the Grizls! I decided to try out this little brownie recipe because I crave chocolate- a lot. Probably too much really. Since I have this problem I had to find a way to get the chocolate, but not feel so guilty about indulging. I saw this recipe on Spark and was skeptical. I mean a brownie that has more fruits and veggies then chocolate- how could it be any good? But, they are. Now, do they taste exactly like a gooey chocolate triple chunk Duncan Hines brownie? No, they don’t. But, we all know the “healthy” stuff never does. What these are though are really good for a healthier brownie option. Personally, I thought they tasted kinda of like super chocolate chip banana bread. I don’t know about you, but that’s sound pretty good to me! I couldn’t taste the zucchini at all, so these would be a great way to sneak in some veggies for your littles. Plus, the zucchini, banana, and applesauce really make these super moist.
1 large banana mashed
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups finely shredded or grated zucchini
2 cups all purpose flour
In a large bowl, mix together the applesauce, mashed bananas and sugar.
Hope you enjoy! I would love it if you came to check out some of my other recipes on my blog when you get a chance!

I made a batch of zucchini brownies last week. They were good but didn’t hit the spot. I am going to try this recipe, it is different than mine.

Those sound fabulous! Pinning them for later.

These sound really yummy. I love zucchini bread, so adding chocolate can only make it better, right?
I’d say that’s some pretty logical thinking. 😉

These sound great! I wonder what people would say if they didn’t know they had veggies/fruits in them! Gotta try it!

Ii grew up eating zucchini bread! I’m sad that this recipe has banana in it as I’m allergic and these sound scrumptious!!!
I started making up a batch before realizing my banana was beyond saving for use. I subbed an egg and they turned out really good. 😉

I have to try these I have an abundance of zucchini this time of year and I’m also a chocoholic lol
I would never have thought to use zucchini in brownies! I will have to try this some time. One of the people I used to work with a million years ago used to make fudge with Velveeta! I would love to find that recipe. I guess in order to find it, I should look for it!
