|Don't let the zucchini scare you: you won't even taste it!|
1c almond meal
1c light brown sugar
3/4c sorghum flour
1/2c cocoa powder
1tsp xanthan gum
1/2tsp baking powder
3/4tsp fine sea salt
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4c + 1tbs extra virgin coconut oil
1tbs vanilla extract
1c packed shredded zucchini, patted dry
1/4c dark chocolate chips
1/2c semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preaheat the oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a square baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond meal, sugar, flour, cocoa, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat until smooth (will be very thick). Add in zucchini and chocolate chips. Stir to combine (may need to use your hands!). Spread brownie batter into the baking pan.
3. Bake in the center of the oven for 20-25 minutes (for an 8x8 pan) or 35-30 minutes (for a 9x9) or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the brownies and let cool slightly. Serve warm: chill or freeze leftovers.
