Too Much Zucchini? Make Zucchini Brownies!

Got an excess of summer zucchini? Then you have the perfect reason to make brownies.

Zucchini makes great muffins and loaves, but when it comes to perfect partnerships, zucchini and chocolate are a heavenly match.

These super-easy, power-packed brownies are a shining–or rather, fudgy–example. They are free of grains, gluten, eggs ,dairy, and refined sugar, but that’s not what makes them exceptional. Rather it’s their luscious, double-chocolate flavor and unctuous texture that make them exceptional.

The key to making these brownies perfect is to avoid over-baking. That means you will need to pull them out of the oven while the centers still look really moist and somewhat under-baked (the toothpick test does not work here). The brownies will firm up as they cool, so let them cool completely in the tin before attempting to remove them. During these hot summer months, it’s a good idea to let them chill overnight, too.

A chilly brownie on a hot summer day is mighty fine.

And an extra-sweet bonus? These brownies are really power bars in disguise (more than 6 grams of protein apiece!). So forget the guilt and instead relish every chocolate-y bite!
