Notes on Ingredients

For this recipe, the ingredients play a pivotal role in achieving that perfect balance of flavor and texture:

  • Ground Flax Meal: Acts as a binder and provides a slightly nutty flavor. It’s a great egg substitute.
  • Self-Rising Flour: Ensures your bites rise well and have a light texture.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Adds deep, rich chocolate flavor.
  • Butter: Gives a smooth, creamy base.
  • White Sugar: Sweetens and helps achieve that desired chewiness.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the overall flavor profile.
  • Zucchini: The star ingredient! Finely grated to blend seamlessly into the batter, providing moisture and a tender crumb.

How to Make Chocolate Zucchini Brownie Bites

  1. Preparation: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 mini muffin pans with cooking spray.
  2. Flax Mixture: Mix 6 tablespoons of water with 2 tablespoons of ground flax meal. Let it sit until it gels, about 5 minutes.
  3. Dry Ingredients: In a small bowl, combine 2 cups of self-rising flour and 6 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.
  4. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, beat ½ cup of softened butter with 1 ½ cups of white sugar using an electric mixer until well combined. Add half of the flax mixture and beat well. Incorporate the remaining flax mixture and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, mixing thoroughly.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Gradually blend in the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Stir in 2 ½ cups of finely grated zucchini with a spoon, mixing well.
  6. Bake: Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pans. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges pull away from the sides, about 20 minutes. Remove from the pans and cool on wire racks.
