flourless zucchini brownies

when stumbling onto a post for zucchini brownies there's only one acceptable outcome. make them and hope for the best. these particular brownies comply with the paleo diet, which i'd never heard of (with a full cup of chocolate chips, it's hard to believe they fit into any diet). skepticism about a lack of cocoa powder in the batter, led me to throw in a couple tablespoons, and it was a good decision. without it, they're closer to a zucchini bread with chocolate chips- and that's not a terrible thing, but it's also not a brownie. these turned out amazing, and seem to get better with age- not that they'll be hanging around for long. it takes serious self control not to eat them in one sitting.

flourless zucchini brownies

  • 1 1/2cups shredded zucchini, excess water drained
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • preheat oven to 350. grease a 9x9 pan (i used some coconut oil).
  • mix all ingredients except the chips in a large bowl. pour into the prepared pan, and sprinkle evenly with chips.
  • bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • let cool on a wire rack, completely before cutting (good luck).
