Healthy Double Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

It's that time of year again...what the heck are you going to do with all that zucchini??

The neighbours are only going to take so much of your limb length squash!  Grill it on the BBQ, bake it up zucchini stick style, fry it up like fritters with corn and smoked salmon, throw it in every sauce you make, top your pizzas and load up your quiche but first...

Make a triple batch of these beauties...

Warning: do not make these unless you like chocolate 

Healthy Double Chocolate Zucchini Brownies
1 cup almond butter
1.5 cups grated zucchini
1/3-1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 egg or vegan replacement (ie flax eggs)
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Handful of dark chocolate or chips

Combine all ingredients in parchment lined 8 by 8 pan...sprinkle with chocolate chips...  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  These get better as the day goes on...
Serve with my Natural Vanilla Ice Cream!  Yummmm...


What do you make with your zucchini harvest?
