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.

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.
