Zucchini Brownies {3 Ingredients}

Zucchini Brownies 2

 The weekend is over. 

How do you like that reality? I don’t like it at all. Seems as though I find myself saying almost every single Sunday evening, that I don’t know where the weekend went. It’s gone in a vapor. Such is life I suppose.

So why not make some brownies to make life more enjoyable?

Warm, gooey, chocolatey brownies. Yes, I think that would make a great Sunday evening pick me up.

Oh, what’s that you say? You’re trying to eat healthier? I got you covered…

These brownies have a secret ingredient that I makes them healthy. Something that some like and some don’t. 

And believe me, if you’re the person that doesn’t like this ingredient, it won’t matter. 

I promise.

You see, these brownies are made with zucchini. Yep, that green, tender, cucumber look-alike stuff. You won’t be able to tell that it’s in them.

I’m not sure that anyone would ever request that big measuring cup of green goo to be placed into their brownies. If you don’t tell them, they won’t even know. 

I did just that. I made these for my family. They gobbled them up with their normal brownie enthusiasm. 

“Mmmmm I love brownies.” 

“These are so good!”

Then after they’ve had their fill, I break the news out on them like a spider monkey.

“You just ate zucchini and you didn’t know it!”

So you see, you have just became a zucchini ninja. Turning dessert time in vegetable time. 

With the quickness. There are only 3 ingredients in the brownies which makes them extra easy and extra quick.

A box of brownie mix. A cup of that green goo, which is just pureed zucchini. And a 3rd cup of milk (any kind you’d like). 

Ninja. Yep.

  2. I love easy recipes, and I like thinking that my cookies are healthy!

  3. I love this! I actually have zucchini now. I may go and try this out 🙂

  4. Growing up, one of my favorite restaurants served a chocolate zucchini cake. I think it was the only way I would eat my veggies. Now I’m much better about it, but I still love the combo!

  5. You had me at 3-ingredient! I would ABSOLUTELY make these babies!

  6. Same here, I love recipes with simple ingredients! They make for really quick shopping runs!

  7. Now that is a great way to sneak in some extra veggies! They really do look delicious and moist!

  8. My grandmother would love this, she loves Zucchini. Can’t wait to share this with her.

  9. I have a lot of zucchini that I froze last year. I need to defrost and use it up! These would be perfect for that.

  10. These look and sound delicious! I’m going to try making a gluten free option. I love giving the girls snacks that are on the healthy side but they will feel they are getting a treat 😉

  14. I love hiding veggies in foods that my kids love to eat that aren’t healthy for them. Last summer I made a zucchini chocolate cake and the gobbled it up! I’m going to make these brownies next. I just printed the recipe to add to my collection (yes I have a physical recipe book and don’t just keep them online! lol). Thanks!
