Brownies with zucchini, bananas, applesauce and chocolate chips–what’s not to like? Low on calories, and filled with a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals.
What you will need:
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used plain pumpkin)
2 small or medium bananas mashed
1/2 cup xyletol ( or you can use white sugar)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups flour (I used gluten-free flour)
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups finely shredded zucchini ( I actually used yellow squash because that is what I had)
Handfull of dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the applesauce (pumpkin), mashed bananas and sugar. Add vanilla and cocoa and mix together. Add baking soda, salt, and zucchini and mix together. Add flour and walnuts and mix together. Spread evenly into a prepared pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.Bake for 25 minutes until brownies spring back when gently touched. That’s it How simple is that?
