Egg White, Nut Butter & Zucchini Brownies


Confession: I’ve got one of the biggest sweet tooths imaginable – I was the kid who regularly had cavities and could easily eat dessert for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Of course as I started making wiser food choices to better align with my wellness goals, a lot of that changed.  But that doesn’t mean I do not indulge classic sweets like brownies — I just enjoy them more in calorie-conscious ways!

That’s why I love this recipe for brownies because they combine many of the staple ingredients I eat on a DAILY basis:

  • Egg whites
  • Nut butter
  • Zucchini

You know I’m all about reimagining food and this recipe is exactly that when you look at these 3 core ingredients.

For the egg whites, I use Bob Evans Egg Whites – they’re easy to quickly incorporate into recipes like this.  Plus they help boost the protein without significantly adding calories, just the protein!  And that’s a win in my (recipe) book.

Ingredients for 9 brownies

  • 1 zucchini, grated and water squeezed out
  • Dry
    • 1/3 cup dark chocolate powder
    • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon fine almond flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • pinch of salt
  • Wet
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used chocolate sweetened with Stevia)


Step 1

Set oven to 350F.

Step 2

Using a fine grater, grate a zucchini over a cheesecloth or heavy duty paper towel. Squeeze out all of the excess liquid, a VERY important step. Set aside.

Step 3

In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Then fold in the dry ingredients and the zucchini. Fold everything together until well mixed. Fold in the chocolate chips but reserve a few for the top of the brownies.

Step 5

Line a square baking dish with parchment paper, then pour in the batter. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.

Step 6

Bake for about 22 – 25 minutes, or until you can pierce the brownies with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Step 7

Let the brownies cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing and devouring!
