Paleo Zucchini Brownies
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup grated zucchini, squeezed to remove extra moisture
(*no need to peel before)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 F and line an 8x8" pyrex with parchment paper and non-stick spray. I use both for a cleaner cut later on.
Step 2: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and maple.
Step 3: Whisk in coconut oil, almond butter, and vanilla.
Step 4: In a separate small bowl - mix together almond flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
Step 5: Next, add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until combined. Add in your zucchini.
Step 6: Pour batter into baking dish, and sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired.
Step 7: Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick/knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool before cutting. Store in the fridge so they get fudge and more delicious!
