Courgette Chocolate Brownies

Courgette Chocolate Brownies, Tracey’s 



Courgettes? Glut? 

For those times when you just have too many flipping courgettes 🙂 and you’re not sure what to do with them?!

Make these super Chocolate Courgette Brownies or if you prefer Zucchini Chocolate brownies – why not?

You could also leave the cake whole and you basically have a courgette cake with chocolate – yum!!

I think you could almost call them healthy chocolate brownies? The lovely Tracey shared her great recipe with us!!

But hold on,  Brownies with courgettes, that’s ok isn’t it?!

Well let me tell you , it’s more than ok! They are so very good!

Have a go and let us know what you think, there really are simply delicious and the courgettes help keep it that touch healthier!

Still amazingly chocolatey but with a tad of green fibre 🙂 and don’t tell those picky eaters!

They will never know – what better way to get veg into the kids?

This recipe also works with beetroot and avocado

And the big kids? (I like to call it sneaky veg)

I hope it helps with the glut you have 🙂

Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters


Vegetable Cakes 

I’m thinking I may do some more recipes with veggies.  

I’m thinking Chocolate & Beetroot Cake and maybe even Parsnip Cake? Do you put veggies in cakes?

Do you make an Vegetable based cakes? Carrot is the obvious, but what about some more unusal ones?

Have a go and let me know by posting a comment below, or let me know what cakes you make with veggies?

Have you seen my Vegan Chocolate Cake – you’ll never guess what it’s made from!
