- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 25 mins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8x11 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Place oats in blender or food processor and process until finely ground. Don't worry, it doesn't need to be perfect but it should take a few minutes. Set aside.
In a large bowl of electric mixer, cream together peanut butter, applesauce, honey and vanilla until smooth. Add in zucchini, cocoa powder, ground oats, baking soda, and salt; mix until well combined. Gently fold in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared baking pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tooth pick inserted into middle comes out almost clean.
Cool brownies completely on wire rack then cut into 20 squares. Enjoy!
1/2 cup all natural unsalted peanut butter
