Perfectly fudgy, super delicious and with a dose of hidden veggies in the most unexpected place, Super Fudgy Brownie Bites are simply a must-make for when you sweet tooth calls. So delicious and decadent, these chocolate miracles are also Paleo, gluten free and dairy-free.
With Valentine’s Day being right around the corner, everyone seems to be turning their attention from their clean eating goals of January to everything chocolate for February. And while I totally get it, I’ve always felt like there must be a way to have you cake and eat it too (pun totally intended).
You see, I love chocolate. Deeply. Profoundly. Truly. It will always be something I enjoy and no matter how clean and healthy I eat, I plan on having chocolate in my life.
With that said, I also truly believe that everything you eat should also serve your body in some way. That even when you are enjoying an indulgent treat, that your body (beyond your taste buds) is getting something positive out of the food you are taking in.
Which is why I did something radical, guys. I put veggies in brownies.
Green veggies, at that. Veggies that your body craves and benefits from.
And the outcome? Amazingly fudgy delicious, decadent brownies that will satisfying your strongest of chocolate cravings but that will actually give your body some real amazing nutrients. Brownies that your children, spouse, friends and coworkers will INHALE because they will be none the wiser to the veggie-loaded goodness that awaits them in these brownies.
And while these brownies are still totally a treat, you can feel good knowing that you are enjoying and sharing a treat that will serve up some veggies into the lives and bellies of those you care about.

Can’t wait to make these. How do you think almond flour would work in these? Is it similar to coconut flour?
I’ve never tried this recipe with almond flour! It might work, though coconut flour tends to absorb more liquid than almond meal…so you might need to add a bit more to prevent them from being too wet.
High five momma…I am known to sneak all sorts of goodies into baked goods!! Chocolate is super helpful since its flavor and color are strong! Will try these as an after school snack!
I’m always awed by the way you can sneak in veggies in the most decadent desserts. These look amazing!
YUM! Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
How am I not surprised you found an awesome way to squeeze some greens into these brownies?! Amazing! I’d devour an entire batch of these 😉
These look so good! Love that there is hidden veggies in them!

Love the look of these! Pinned! Can’t wait to make them 🙂
Do you think this could be done without zucchini and just with spinach?
I just love your recipes so much! Packing spinach and zucchini in a brownie?! I’m so glad I found your site.
I didn’t have spinach so I used carrots, and mixed flour with carob flour,
it was very nice, kids loved them
Do you have nutritional info on these??
Hello! I have just recently added nutritional information on my recipes. My new recipes have them and I am slowly going back and updating my older ones. Hopefully I will get to this one soon. 🙂
My batch came out fairly eggy. Not flavor but like those flourless mug cakes almost. Should I have backed longer than 35 minutes or maybe reduced by 1 egg?
Hmmmm. I haven’t had that issue. Did you make any changes? Maybe your eggs were bigger than mine.
