Collagen Zucchini Brownies

Print

I had a bunch of zucchini sitting in my fridge recently, so of course I decided to turn them into some Collagen Zucchini Brownies! You can eat them fresh out the oven, or if you want to make them last as a dessert “meal prep”, freeze them so you can enjoy them for a few weeks. (If you can make them last that long!)

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Using zucchini and bananas in baking is a great way to hide some fruits and veggies into something sweet! Zucchini is a high source of antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. It also contains pectin, a particular fiber that has been linked to improved heart health and in lowering cholesterol. Pectin also has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which is also found in other fruits and vegetables as well.
