Trying to get your kids to eat healthy is no easy task. The key is feeding them healthy foods without them knowing it! Sneaky, but hey a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do! These brownies are ┬ámade with zucchini, bananas and applesauce, giving you a brownie with only 120 calories, 2 grams of fat, and a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals, and egg free. They taste just as delicious and sweet as your typical chocolate brownie, but come with much less eater’s remorse.

What you need:
1/2 C applesauce
2 small or medium bananas mashed
1 1/2 Csugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 C cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 C finely shredded zucchini
2 C all purpose flour
1/2 C walnut pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 9×13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together the applesauce, mashed bananas and sugar. Add vanilla and cocoa and mix together. Then add baking soda, salt, and zucchini and mix together. Add flour and walnuts and mix together. Spread evenly into a prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes until brownies spring back when gently touched.

This is the perfect late-summer dish to have in your back pocket while zucchini is still plentiful at the grocery store! Zucchini is great because it’s a mild tasting vegetable, and easy on children’s picky taste buds. Not to mention the chedder and parmesan cheese make this casserole practically melt in your mouth. We like to think of this as the ideal transitional dish from summer to fall! But go ahead and make for yourself, and let us know what you think!

What you’ll need:

1 C. mayonnaise
1 onion, minced
1 egg
Dash salt and pepper
1 C. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 C. parmesan cheese
3 zucchinis, diced

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Place in greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with dry bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, covered.

Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes. Serve hot.
