Ooooh, brownies. We all love them. Unfortunately they are often high in sugar, high in fat and calories. Not these ones! These brownies are just as moist and fudgy as the original but they are clean, flourless, eggless and healthy! They are so soft they melt in your mouth and I promise: you won’t taste the zucchini.

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups finely grated zucchini
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
dark chocolate chip (as many or as little as you like)

Method
Peel and grate the zucchini – set aside. Combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the zucchini and then the chocolate chips (I used about 3/4 of a cup of chocolate chips to mix in with the batter and the remaining 1/4 of a cup to sprinkle on top of the batter).
Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan and pour in the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean.
