Healthy Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Brownies

You know what I love about these brownies? They’re loaded with good-for-you ingredients, but they taste very rich and chocolatey! Just like any of my recipes, you would never know they are healthy. Seriously, bring them to your next get-together, and don’t tell anyone they’re healthy until after they taste them. I’ve done this with my Cosmic Brownies, Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Apple Crisp recipes, and everyone is SHOCKED when they find out the recipes are healthy.

No Flour Zucchini Brownies

These zucchini brownies are completely flourless. But, the only “flour” you will need is oat flour! I looooove when healthy baking recipes only require one type of flour. That’s why I’ve made recipes like my protein cookie dough balls, gluten-free lava cakes, and my healthy sugar cookie fruit pizza. I give a full rundown on oat flour here. Cameron and I also made a fun IGTV video talking about the best healthy flour alternatives! You should definitely check it out!

Vegan Zucchini Brownies

These brownies are totally vegan-friendly! All you need to do is use a flax or chia egg in place of the regular egg. Honestly, this will probably make the brownies even fudgier and more delicious! How to Make a Chia Egg

The last ingredient that makes these brownies vegan is the chia egg or flax egg! I use this same technique in all of my brownie recipes (vegan raspberry brownies, copycat cosmic brownies, secretly healthy brownies). If you’ve never heard of a chia egg, don’t be freaked out. No, it’s not made from a chia chicken!  Chia eggs are very simple. I used them in my Vegan Sugar Cookie recipe too! They work just like eggs! 

  • Just grind up 1 Tbs of chia seeds (or flax seeds) in a coffee grinder (or whatever you use to grind things)
  • Mix ground up chia seeds in a small bowl with 2 Tbs water. 
  • It will thicken and become like an egg! Chia egg will thicken right away and flax eggs will need about 3-5 minutes to thicken.

Healthy Zucchini Brownies (Super Fudgy + Vegan!)

These healthy zucchini brownies are so fudgy and rich you would never know they are secretly packed with clean ingredients and no refined sugar. These brownies are made without refined white flour and they have the best fudgy chocolate texture. Gluten-free with a vegan option and so easy to make!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

Wet

Dry

Fold Ins

  • 2 Cups Shredded Zucchini (Not tightly packed. Make sure zucchini seeds are removed)
  • ¼ Cup Dairy-Free Chocolate Chunks + more for topping

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. and line a 2-quart baking dish (or 8x8 dish) with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, add in all wet ingredients except coconut oil and mix until smooth. Then, mix in coconut oil slowly while still whisking (this ensures the coconut oil does not solidify again).

3. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

4. Next, add in the zucchini and chocolate chunks/chips. Fold to combine and transfer to baking dish. Top with extra chocolate chips.

5. Bake at 350 F. for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs (mine was perfect after 25 minutes). 

6. Let cool completely and serve with dairy-free ice cream or coconut whipped cream! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week! Brownies will hold up more after being stored in the fridge, they are super gooey and may fall apart right out of the oven if not cooled (which I kind of like!).

Notes

  1. Egg Alternative: Mix the ground chia seeds or flax seeds with the water and allow to thicken 3-5 minutes.
