Zucchini Brownies

Whole wheat, dairy free and vegan YES but these Brownies are also Gooey, chocolaty and delicious!  I adding a little frosting to the top of these (mostly for picture purposes) but it's totally optional and they are good without!  

I have an abundance of Zucchini still, and it's very tempting to make another batch of these I tell ya, they were so good and it was a good thing I shared with family and friends otherwise I probably would have eaten the whole tray!  



Zucchini Brownie Recipe

They came out lumpy looking
on the Top But don't let that
fool you they were moist inside!

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cups honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zucchini (1 large or 2 small zucchinis)
3-5 tablespoons water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional


Directions:


Wet Mixture all combined
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and stir. 
  • Fold in the zucchini. If your mixture is still very powdery, add up to 5 tablespoons water (start with 1 tablespoon and work up from there, stirring well after each addition). The batter will be very thick but shouldn't be powdery. (It partially depends on how wet your zucchini is!) 
  • Add walnuts, if desired.  Spread in prepared pan.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes until the brownies spring back when gently touched.
