Zucchini brownies (sweet).

A particular recipe in which courgettes are used in a dessert. You will be surprised to discover how the use of zucchini in these brownies is spot on and gives the sweets a nice texture even without the use of butter.

Ingredients for 12 brownies:

  • Spray cooking oil
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 120g of superfine almond flour
  • 50g of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 170g of honey (or equal other liquid sweetener)
  • 70g of grated courgettes*
  • 130g of sugar-free and lactose-free chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 160° and spray a 22x22cm baking tray with oil, cut a piece of baking paper 22cm wide and a little longer so that it extends a little over the edge and is easy to remove from the baking tray afterwards cooking. Place it in the pan.
  2. In a bowl beat whip the egg whites
  3. In a larger bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, salt and bicarbonate then add the grated zucchini and egg whites whipped with a spatula. Combine the honey and vanilla and mix until it becomes a homogeneous mixture. Add the chocolate chips and distribute them evenly throughout the dough then pour it into the baking tray, leveling it well
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes checking the center with a toothpick, when it comes out clean the brownies are done. Leave to cool for 30 minutes then cut into 12 pieces and serve.
