Sweet Things

Healthier Double Chocolate Brownie Bites

Today I’m making my Healthier Double Chocolate Brownie Bites. To be honest, I have a serious sweet tooth. Sometimes I just crave it and for me trying to substitute an apple or orange just doesn’t cut it. 

 

Since I’m working on making healthier choices.. I was thinking about what I could make that would fufill that chocolate craving and still be on the healthy side.

And I’m super excited because not only does it have vegetables & fruits in it, but it just screams “I’m sweet, rich, chocolate.. devour me please !”

For this recipe I’m taking the idea of a double chocolate chip muffin crossed with a gooey chocolate brownie, substituting coconut flour, & using avocados, zucchini, and puréed apples for extra nutrients and moisture!

Print Recipe
Serves: 24 Mini Muffins Cooking Time: 14 mins @ 350°

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 whole sliced Zucchini
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Avocado
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 1 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pureed apples or applesauce
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

1

Your oven should be preheated to 350°

2

Spray a muffin pan with non stock spray.

3

Now combine your pureed apples, eggs, greek yogurt, & zucchini.

4

I'm combining them straight into my ninja blender.

5

Than I'm adding the coconut flour, cocoa powder, avocado, olive oil, coconut sugar, & milk.

6

Add the salt, baking soda, vanilla, & cinnamon.

7

Blend well.

8

Portion them into your muffin pan , a scoopful in each individual spot.

9

Finally top it with a spoonful of your chocolate chips.

10

Place it in the oven and let them cook for about 14 minutes.

11

When you think they're done test them with a tooth pick.

12

Stick it in the middle and if it comes out clean its done.

13

Let them cool for about 10 minutes.

I do not have any gluten allergies, and I do eat it quite often. However, I’m really TRYING to cut it out of my diet as much as I can. I just feel better all around when I limit it to once or twice a week. Plus, I’ve noticed eliminating it is one of the components that helps me to lose more weight.

Instead I’m using coconut flour, which I love baking with. However, it’s important to note when cooking with coconut flour, it’s more absorbent. It will leave your items more dense if you do not make the proper adjustments. To offset that, my pureed apples and greek yogurt will add moisture. While these taste like a brownie, they are so much healthier, you could even eat them for breakfast if you wanted!

    OH MY GOODNESS these sound delicious!! I am currently gluten free for weight loss and have a SERIOUS sweet tooth! I make black bean brownies which are fabulous, but need another chocolate treat and I think I may have found it! I can’t wait to make these!!! I also substitute white sugar with coconut sugar, great alternative.
