These are moist and chocolatey, and easy to make. I use coconut sugar, but substitute raw local honey or real maple syrup if you prefer. I’ve used all three on various occasions, depending on what was in my pantry.
A nice treat for the Holidays that is gluten- free!
Flourless Chocolate Brownies
1 cup almond butter
1 ½ cups grated zucchini
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand: soy-, dairy-, and gluten-free)
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Grate the zucchini using a food processor or hand grater.
Combine all the ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.
Pour into a greased 9×9 inch baking dish.
Bake 35-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
I have made this recipe with the zucchini and almond butter, but also with cashew butter and golden beets when that’s what was in the refrigerator. Equally good either way!
