Behold, these super yummy (and healthy) flourless brownie bites!
They contain no flour or gluten or added refined sugar. They're still chocolate-y and delicious and healthy which makes them a perfect special-treat addition to both Ethan's lunch and my (Celiac) husband's lunch. I probably wouldn't say no if he asked for one for breakfast or as a midday snack, so Ethan has that going for him.
Here is how we made them:
1c all-natural peanut butter
1/4c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp chia or flax seed (ground)
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 zucchini, peeled
The directions are pretty simple: throw it all into your blender or food processor.
We tossed everything into our Blendtec and pulsed until smooth.
Once your batter is smooth, take your mini muffin tins (lightly greased) and pour in the batter, 3/4 way full.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Let cool and then pop out.
This recipe made 40 brownie bites in our mini muffin tins.
