- 1 Minute Read
Do you love brownies and are you always on the lookout for creative ways to get in your veggies? Check out this recipe that checks both boxes! These brownies are tasty, made without butter, and contain zucchini as their secret ingredient.
As a Registered Dietitian who loves to play in the kitchen I am always on the lookout for recipes that offer a healthier spin on an old classic. That's where this recipe for zucchini brownies comes alive. The zucchini adds a nice texture and provides additional vitamin C, folate and dietary fiber. Traditional brownies are often higher in calories and fat. Using cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate and canola oil instead of butter contributes to the calorie savings. And you'll save on saturated fat by using canola oil in place of butter, which your heart will thank you for!
This is a go-to recipe for me all year long. It is tasty, straight forward AND it freezes well. I am a huge proponent of cooking once and eating twice. I will often double the recipe and freeze a batch for later. Enjoy!
