Dark and Fudgey, Low Fat Almond (Zucchini!) Brownies

I know I know, brownies made of fruits and veggies, but hey they are chewy and satisfying while still being good for you!  Serve with some banana soft serve! (I will post a recipe for this, stay tuned…) I love the creamy texture with the carob chip crunch:) If you like almond flavor, I highly recommend the almond extract. If you don’t like or can’t have almond, you can subs for vanilla.

You need:

1 large ripe banana, mashed 

8 medjool dates, puréed 

1/2 cup soy milk

1.5 tsp almond extract

1 cup cocoa/cacao

1/2 cup flour (i mixed brown rice and oat flour)

1/2 tsp each baking powder and soda

2 tbs flax

1/4 cup carob chips

2 cups shredded zucchini 

Mix all together and turn into non-stick silicone baking pan.

Bake at 350 for 40-50 min, depending on how chewy you want the inside. I used a large regtangular bread loaf pan; cook until toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
