Vegan and Gluten Free Golden Summer Zucchini Espresso Flourless Brownies RecipeI just harvested some delicious golden summer zucchini and wanted to play around with some unusual uses. Sure I could toss them on the grill, into a stir or on a salad but I wanted something sweet. So I took a stab at making some brownies with them and here is the recipe! Vegan, gluten free and healthier than your traditional chocolate treat, it’s a great way to get non-veggie eaters to devour them!
