  • The Nourished Seedling

    Peppermint Black Bean Brownies

    Using black beans as the base of these brownies gives you a shot of fiber that will fill you up, not make you crave more (and more). Use crushed candy canes or mints as a garnish on top for a festive finish.

    Chocolate Avocado Brownies

    You can expect brownies to have fat, yes, but the avocado in this recipe means those fats are the healthy kind. The entire batch takes about 30 minutes—perfect for when you need something sweet after dinner and don't have any of your usual staples on hand.

    Greek Yogurt Brownies

    You already sub Greek yogurt into your morning smoothie, but adding it to this dessert is an easy way to get moist, fudgy brownies without tons of sugar. The extra calcium you'll get from eating one of these squares is a nice bonus, too!

  • Beard & Bonnet

    Cranberry Marshmallow Swirl Brownies

    The best part of this recipe is that you'll have extra cranberry marshmallow sauce left over, which you could even use as a dip for graham crackers later. Can't argue with that!

    Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

    Grated zucchini is the secret weapon that makes these brownies extra moist. Just make sure to squeeze the excess moisture out of the zucchini before baking with the other ingredients, so your dessert doesn't become too mushy.
