Carrot Zucchini Chocolatey Brownies (gluten & dairy free)

2 Mar

Skeptical? Don’t be. These are by far my favorite brownies. Fudgy but fluffy and not too dense, they have a hybrid mousse-fudge consistency!  The oat flour in these brownies leaves you feeling satisfied but not heavy, plus that paired with the veggies = guilt free! Try them… you won’t regret it! —Alex
