Zucchini Paleo Brownies

Zucchini Paleo Brownies

How do you get vegetables and fruit in a brownie? Try this Zucchini Paleo Brownies recipe! The zucchini, applesauce and bananas makes them moist, stevia keeps them sugar-free, and the cocoa will satisfy your chocolate craving. You won’t even be able to tell they have zucchini in them, or need eggs or butter to make them (they are vegan too). If you like an extra layer of chocolate, top them off with chocolate ganache.
