Now, I wouldn't blame you if you freaked out a bit when someone told you your brownies contained vegetables. But you really have to bear with me here, I promise they're delicious. For a while now cooks have been experimenting with putting things like avocado and courgette into a brownie batter as a replacement for butter. This lowers the calorie content of the brownies, and fills them with goodness, without removing their squidgy, chocolately loveliness.
Generally the vegetable butter substitute is completely flavourless. The only change is that the brownies become extra squidgy, so firming up in the fridge is a must.
In this recipe we're making matcha brownies with courgette as the veggie of choice! Just try it out, they're great if you're on a diet or trying out some clean eating.
