Almost Healthy Zucchini Brownies

Almost Healthy Zucchini Brownies

I Love chocolate!! If it’s around I eat it… If it’s not around, I crave it! So when Mama H emailed me a recipe handed down from her mother for Zucchini Brownies I had to try them. I mean they contain veggies, that makes them almost healthy brownies…right?!?!Keep this zucchini recipe in your back pocket for the next time you want to make something sweet. One of grandma's recipes passed down through generations. Almost healthy zucchini brownies.

We all have those recipes. The ones that have been handed down. Some are hand written and some are in a cookbook with cute handwritten notes on the side. This one had a note, “great with a cup of coffee”. Oh boy was she right!Almost healthy zucchini brownies. Chocolate chips! Used a mini muffin pan.

J ate around 3 before I told him what was hidden inside. He was shocked! I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a sign of them… Almost healthy zucchini brownies. Chocolate chips! Used a mini muffin pan.Almost like they disappeared. Only on very close observation would you notice a spec of green here and there.

haha I like that these are "almost" healthy. I'm all about sneaking veggies in whenever you can. These look really yummy. I'm sure my son will LOVE them.

Yum! Thanks for the recipe! I have put zuchinni into brownies before and the kids loved it. Chocolate chips make brownies so much better too. =)

I'm going to have to try these! They look PHENOMENAL!!! And I love zucchini loaf, etc. I also love how you called it "almost healthy" you're not pretending it's more than what it actually is :)

I don't think a brownie could ever be classified as healthy ;) This is as close as you will probably get with it still tasting delicious!!
