The Perfect Brownie


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup finely shredded zucchini, squeezed to remove extra moisture (I grated it, then pulsed it through my food processor for extra fine texture) *no need to peel the zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips + more for sprinkling on top


Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8x8 with parchment paper and non-stick spray. In a food processor, pulse together eggs, maple syrup. and honey. Add in coconut oil, almond butter and vanilla and pulse to combine. Add in dry ingredients and pulse again. Add in shredded zucchini and pulse for 30 seconds then add in chocolate chips. Pour into 8x8 dish and top with more chocolate chips if desired. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool before cutting.. if you can!
