Healthier Chocolate Brownie

Healthier Chocolate Brownie

Posted 2017-05-21 by Naomi follow
Moist, delicious and easy to make with cocoa or cacao and sneaky zucchini. It tastes just like a chocolate brownie and you won't notice it is healthier. I like it best warm but you will need to cool it if you want to ice it. This is a great dessert or for parties.

    Tips
  • This brownie tastes great with 2/3 cup macadamias, hazelnuts or walnuts.
  • I have replaced the flour with 2 cups rice flour and 1 tsp baking powder successfully before.
