I’m a fan of chocolate and all things sweet. One thing that I cannot pass up is a good brownie. But when you are trying to lose weight and eat healthy, you often have to fight the cravings that come along with it. I had always hoped that my sweet tooth would dissipate, but it never really has.

A chocolate craving got to me one day and in an attempt to make it go away, I picked up this recipe for low-fat Paleo zucchini brownies. I was amazed at how great they tasted and even more amazed at how much healthier  they are for you!

These low-fat paleo zucchini brownies have so much more to offer you than the “boxed” brownie mixes. One reason for this is that you are using Stevia instead of sugar. Stevia has no carbohydrates or calories and is believed to have antibacterial and antioxidant properties where sugar does not. You are also getting added nutrients with the applesauce, bananas, zucchini and walnuts.

In this delectable dessert, you are not only getting your vegetables, but you’re getting your fruit too!
