Paleo and flourless zucchini brownies! Fudgy, moist and the best way to use up some garden zucchini! Topped with an almond butter chocolate ganache – you cannot pass these up.
You know… I really don’t have a lot of brownie recipes on my site. I’ve got ones with beets (just trust me), ones with mint matcha frosting… and that is it! So I needed to fix that pronto. Plus I needed an excuse to use the gigantic zucchini from my in-law’s garden. One of these days I shall have a garden of my own… but honestly I do not want to make time for that right now. I can barely keep succulents alive for goodness sakes. Lawd help me when I go to try and keep an entire garden alive.
I just wasn’t really born with a green thumb. I remember every spring we would go to my Nana’s house and help plant flowers and tomato plants in her garden. But that was about it.
When Drew and I were living in our apartment in PA, we planted various tomato plants and bell peppers in the mulch because we weren’t sure how the landlord would feel about us putting a garden in his yard. I also thought you were supposed to pick the flowers off of the bell peppers… You know, like you do with herbs. Of course as I was picking the flowers off of the bell peppers, I had this odd feeling I was doing it wrong. I quickly found out that I was in fact picking off what was going to turn into a bell pepper. I clearly didn’t pay attention in high school biology… That is just one of my many embarrassing moments. I still get teased for it to this day 🙂
AH WELL. Lesson learned.
I’ve also learned that zucchini is best either spiralized, or in baked goods 🙂 I don’t mind a roasted vegetable medley with summer squash and whatnot, but overall making use of zucchini via zoodles and baking is my favorite. [Read More…]
