Holy decadent dessert! No one will be able to guess that there are veggies in these brownies ¡ª all they’ll taste is soft and moist chocolate bliss.
Instead of grating the zucchini, it’s pureed, resulting in a smoother consistency. Even the most keen of taste buds won’t be able to detect that there are veggies in all that double chocolatey goodness.
These melt-in-your-mouth moist, rich, and fudgy brownies taste so sinful, you’ll be amazed that they’re vegan and just over 150 calories. Aside from the fiber, potassium, and vitamin C offered by the zucchini, the dark chocolate is also full of antioxidants.
