The Best Healthy Brownies

The Best Healthy Brownies 

I love blogs where they get straight to the point as far as recipes go. So here it is, I have been on the Fast Metabolism Diet for about a month and each week it gets better and easier (check out the app if your interested in the diet, it makes it so much easier!). One of the things I miss is sweets and I am always searching for yummy healthy alternatives to my favorite sweet items. 

I decided I needed a brownie today so I looked up a healthy recipe and then I tweaked it to fit my diet. 

Yummy Zucchini Brownies  

What you use: 

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (next time I will try applesauce as a replacement)
  • 1 1/2 cups birth xylitol
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder 
  • 2 cups oatmeal (pureed to make flour) 
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda 
  • 1 tsp. salt (I used sea salt)
  • 3 cups puree zucchini (2 large zucchini) 
  • handful of semisweet chocolate chips 
The batter during nap time. 

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 pan with baking spray. 
2. Combine oil (or applesauce), birch xylitol, and vanilla in a bowl. 
3. Add the oatmeal flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. 
4. Fold in the zucchini. (The recipe I followed said to let the batter rest at this point, I'm not really sure what that means so I sang rock-a-bye baby and swaddled it.....just kidding) 
5. Add in chocolate chips and stir
6. Spread brownie mixture into the pan and bake for 30 minutes. 
7. Cut and enjoy :) 

I couldn't resist before I took this picture- it was so delicious!
