Hey everyone! I had to last minute take a little trip (ohh nooo, surprise vacation? the worst ;-)) and I’m super happy to have Abbie here filling in for me! If you haven’t met Abbie, she’s the teenage delicious food genius over at Needs Salt. Abbie is a total sweetheart and I’m completely jealous that she has all of these healthy eating/baking/photography/blogging skills that I don’t even really have under control in my mid-20s. And we can especially agree on this sweet ‘n salty combo she has in her guest post today!
Hey all you awesome readers of Hidden Fruits and Veggies! I’m Abbie. I make things and write about them over at my own blog, Needs Salt. First off, I want to thank Kelly so much for having me guest post for her! It is a total pleasure and an honor to be able to share my own creation in her beautiful space. Because seriously — this blog she has going here is the bomb. I love it.
Now, onto the brownies!
Ultimately, my goal with making food is to create simple, healthy and (incredibly) delicious recipes that nourish your body and soul. It sounds cliche, but it is 100% true. When I make food (especially sweet food) I want people to eat it and not even know that it is actually good for them. And a perfect poster child example of this goal? are these brownies.
So fudgy. So rich. So decadent. So… healthy? You know it. Vegan. Gluten-free. Refined-sugar free (or even sugar-free). Low in sugar. High in vitamins. Loaded with chocolate. And full of zucchini.
Uh-huh. So yeah, chocolate zucchini bread has been a thing for a while (and kind of one of the most amazing things on planet earth have you TRIED IT?) but zucchini brownies? Now we’re taking it to the next level. And we’re sprinkling on a little bit of pink Himalayan salt. Just because we can. (And because chocolate + salt is the best combo ever – arguable right above chocolate + peanut butter – in case you missed it)
“I was expecting to not like them because they’re… y’know, healthy. But they’re actually amazing.” said my cousin about these brownies. They have been called “incredible”, “soooo fudgy”, “unbelievable” and “perfect”. I know you’ve got one of those overgrown, seedy zucchinis somewhere… so what’s the hold up? Make these brownies and amaze yourself.
