… with chocolate Ganache topping (picture) or Everyday Chocolate Icing.
Yes, these are entirely divine, chocolaty to the extreme, moist, fudgy … and yes, there is whole wheat flour and zucchinis in them too. See, that makes you feel better already!
Shhhhh, don’t tell the kids though
These are healthy! Well, ok, maybe not exactly healthy … but they are good for you.
Here is the recipe:
Preparation InstructionsPreheat oven to 350 F. Grease mini muffin pan.
Combine sugar and wet ingredients.
I use the unrefined sugar, works great here. Note though that it is NOT the same as brown sugar!
Beat until well mixed.
Mix all the dry ingredients, except chocolate and zucchini, and add the wet ingredients. Mix. Then add zucchini and chocolate chips. Stir until well mixed. Spoon into the mini muffin pan and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While the brownie bites are baking, make the Ganache OR the Every Day Icing.
- 3/4 cup Heavy cream
- 8 ounces semisweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
Watch carefully so it doesn’t boil over or burn.
Place the chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Remove the cream from the heat, and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted. Place the bowl, uncovered, in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes, or preferably 1 hour. Place the electric mixer beaters in the refrigerator to chill.
After it is cooled, whip the ganache on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the frosting lightens in color and drastically increases in volume. Pipe the ganache on the brownie bites when they are cool. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Everyday Icingthat is also extremely yummy and quicker to make, do the following:
Mix all ingredients and spread over just cooled brownie bites. Or, melt the butter with the milk, mix all the other ingredients in and dip the tops of the brownie bites while still warm. Cool on a drying rack.
You can also bake this as a brownie pan. In that case bake for 25-35 minutes and spread the Everyday Icing on while still slightly warm.
All these options are extremely yummy and you should probably try them all - just to make sure I’m right
