No oil no butter Brownies, that still rock

I love, nay adore, brownies. The problem is once I make them I want to eat them ALL myself. I usually make the homeade Hershey's brownie recipe but I really wanted to find something more healthy if possible. When I found this I super curious and they turned out amazing.

Hubs tried them without knowing what was in them and loved them. They are a tad more fluffy and less dense then normal homeade brownies which was also a nice treat. You can't tell that there is anything different in them and when you split them open you can't see any zucchini!

I highly recomend giving this one a try if you want to feel a little less guilty. I was super proud though that I only had 1 and sent the rest to Joshua's work :)

plus zuccini are in season right now!
