Easy and vegan, gluten-free Chocolate-Zucchini-Brownies
After a far too long absence here, I am of course back with a super delicious and easy recipe! With the founding of Dein Kakao, I’ve been swamped with work and unfortunately, the time for my beloved blog has fallen by the wayside… Sometimes you realize that there are only 24 hours in a day! So, it’s all the more important to take a break and relax every now and then. For me, baking is actually calming and when something so delicious results from it, it can only be good! 🙂
- 1 vegetable grater
- 1 Small pot
- 3 bowls
- 1 oven dish ca. 24 x 30 cm
- 2 zucchini ca. 300 g
- 1 ripe banana
- 175 g gluten-free flour
- 60 g cocoa hundert pro from Dein Kakao
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla flavour or 1/2 tsp tonka bean
- 150 g date sugar or xylitol or other sugar substitute
- 50 g vegan butter melted
- 80 ml oat vanilla milk
- 75 g dark chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 180° top/bottom heat.
- First grate the courgettes in a bowl and mash the banana with a fork in another bowl.
- Now mix the gluten-free flour, cocoa, baking powder, vanilla flavour (or tonka bean), salt, and date sugar (xylitol) in a new bowl. Add the melted vegan butter and the oat vanilla milk and mix well.
- Then mix in the grated courgettes and the mashed banana and mix everything together. Now fill the mixture into your oven dish.
Topping and baking
- Finally, chop the dark chocolate into coarse pieces and spread them over your dough.
- Bake your chocolate courgette cake for approx. 35-40 minutes at 180°. When testing with chopsticks, some dough may still stick to the cake so that it remains particularly moist. Leave to cool for approx. 15 minutes and as always: Enjoy to the fully fullest!
Delicious, fudgy, gluten-free and vegan!
Of course, you can also bake the recipe with normal wheat flour if it’s not important to you that it’s gluten-free. Of course, I use our hundert pro from Dein Kakao, because there is simply no better cocoa powder. Plus, of course, it’s fair and organic, both of which are very close to my heart. If you don’t know yet how I’m connected to Dein Kakao in short: I founded it together with friends/acquaintances because we finally wanted to create a good cocoa powder that wasn’t loaded with sugar. I know so many people who love hot chocolate but don’t drink it very often because it’s mostly unhealthy – we wanted to change that, Dein Kakao is the result. But that’s all I want to tell you. Feel free to read up on it yourself if you want to know more!
As I always have my recipes tested by my friends, I can guarantee that it has even been approved by a pregnant friend. Now that’s a good sign! Also, these chocolate courgette aka zucchini brownies are supposed to keep for 2-3 days in the fridge. I can’t confirm that yet, though, as they’ve never survived that long before… 🙂 Same with my “Hot Chocolate Popsicles” in the freezer…
With this in mind: Enjoy to the fullest and have fun baking!
Yours, Rosa 🙂
