How To Make JackieD Zucchini Blondies (Gluten Free)
Updated: Apr 19, 2021
Are you ready to do some baking? These really are pretty easy to make and your family will more than likely love these if they aren't told they have vegetables in them. The trick may be finding frozen zucchini. You could use frozen spiralized zucchini, run it through a grater and then thaw it out. Make sure you drain it after it thaws. If you are using fresh zucchini, run it through a grinder or grater. Shredded zucchini does not work as well. After grating or grinding the fresh zucchini, let it sit in a strainer for 10 or 15 minutes. You could start measuring your other ingredients while it's draining. This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. Choose your sweeteners and chocolate chips wisely if you have diet restrictions. Always read labels. For an even cakier texture, add 1 Cup GF Flour and if batter is too thick add almond milk 1/4 cup at a time until you reach a consistency that is similar to brownie batter.
