Recipe: Gluten Free Zucchini Brownies

I’ve been dedicating some free time to baking once/week and it feels SO good. Sometimes I bake for myself, sometimes for family or for friends, and it puts me in the best mood (plus you get to enjoy a delicious treat when you’re done!). These gluten free zucchini brownies are the easiest and most delicious treat! Brownies are one of my favourite things to healthify and I love sneaking in some zucchini for extra veggie goodness.

  • sweetened with natural sugars which contain minerals which help to balance blood sugars, unlike refined sugars
  • easy, delicious and healthier than store-bought brownies!
