Healthy Zucchini Brownies

Vegan Double Fudge Brownies With a Secret Ingredient

Holy decadent dessert! No one will be able to guess that there are veggies in these brownies — all they'll taste is soft and moist chocolate bliss.

Instead of grating the zucchini, it's pureed, resulting in a smoother consistency. Even the most keen sense of taste buds won't be able to detect that there are veggies in all that double chocolatey goodness.

These melt-in-your-mouth moist, rich, and fudgey brownies taste so sinful, you'll be amazed that they're vegan and just over 150 calories. Aside from the fiber, potassium, and vitamin C offered by the zucchini, the dark chocolate is also full of antioxidants.
