Not me. Never.
To be honest, I sort of require a break. I am working a ridiculous amount recently and I feel as though I need some down time. Since I function a full period job beyond this blog, I must say i only have the time to create formulas within the weekends. That results in me working on a regular basis. From Saturday morning to Sunday night you’ll find me at Ambitious Kitchen HQ creating absurd messes which i never want to completely clean up.
Chocolate with a dose of health.
Meet up with the Flourless Chocolate Chip Zucchini Oat Brownies.
So increds. So amazing. Words cannot explain this magic.
Ugh I always say that, don’t I?
Okay but really… can you believe that 1 brownie has ONLY 86 calories and 6g of glucose? YES, it’s true.
These are made with peanut butter, honey, applesauce, and zucchini, and do you know what? The thing you flavor is delicious chocolate and a slight chewy texture in the oats. I’m quite impressed with myself.
Oh, oh, oh! These are totally gluten free; and vegan in the event that you swap maple syrup for honey and make use of vegan chocolate chips.
Gotta work! xoxo

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8×11 baking skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
Place oats in blender or food processor and process until finely ground. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect but it should take a few minutes. Set aside.

I’ll choose chocolate having a dose of health” anytime. These sound wonderful!!
Hope that the new full-time work is going well. I’m surprised at all you do! ðŸ‚
But yours look a lot more chocolatey, which i am almost all for
Awesome recipe Monique! I love it when dessert is healthy!
MAY I just express I totally understand how you feel on the whole nonstop working factor? I am blogging for about 8 months now and I really like it nonetheless it eats up all of my free time over the weekend. It’s seriously exhausting but so difficult to stop on! Complain all you want, I’m right here to wallow in it with you!! ðŸ‚
These turned about amazingly well but I made a few adjustments:
1) We added a 1/4C of additional sugars as the batter wasn’t very sweet.
2) I used homemade apple sauce (much less water than commercial).
3) I cooked them in muffin cups to make them simpler to serve.
4) Sprinkled them with ‘pearl glucose’ to create them look good.
EVERYONE (even the non vegans) cherished these. Very gooey/dark chocolate tasting. Really a great keeper. Unlike additional ‘no-fat’ desserts, that may haver horrible consistency, this one really worked. Looking forward to trying it once again to see easily simply got lucky or it can be repeated…
These were divine!! I am a huge fan of marrying zucchini and chocolate!! I have a popular recipe I have already been making for years- Spiced Belgian Chocolates Zucchini Bread which I might just replace with this recipe. This is a perfect suit for my recent gluten-free & low sugar diet!! Perhaps I could always add the cloves and cinnamon to give it that spiced kick, aswell!
Can’t wait to talk about these & actually happy to have discovered your blog!!
