Veggie Patch Brownies

veggie patch brownies

You won't believe all the healthy veggies packed into such a tasty treat! Unbelievably moist and oh-so chocolatey, these brownies are naturally gluten-free and packed with zucchini and protein-rich quinoa.


  • 1 ½ cups cooked Brightest Brilliant Rainbow Quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup dairy or non-dairy milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F, and line an 8 x 8 pan with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Add cooked quinoa to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  3. Whisk together the brown sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, milk, and eggs.
  4. Mix the blended quinoa into the wet ingredients.
  5. Sift the cocoa powder and baking powder into the wet ingredients, and mix until well combined.
  6. Squeeze the grated zucchini to get rid of the excess liquid, then add to batter, stirring to combine.
  7. Pour into the lined pan, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Let cool, cut into squares, and enjoy! We loved these brownies chilled in the refrigerator!
