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!
