Description

These Mango Zucchini Blondies are a healthy delicious treat – perfect for an afternoon or evening snack. They are also Gluten, Oil, and Refined Sugar Free!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup Diced Mango (be sure it is really ripe and juicy)
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Zucchini, drained (see notes)
  • 2 cup Instant or Rolled Oats
  • 2/3 cup Almond Butter or Tahini
  • 1/2 cup Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. 
  2. Place your pitted Medjool Dates into a bowl, and cover them with hot water. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then drain completely.
  3. In the meantime, shred and drain your Zucchini (see notes) and prepare the Oat Flour by blending 2 cups of Oats in a high speed blender or food processoruntil fine and fluffy, about 45 – 60 seconds.
  4. Remove the Oat Flour from the blender / food processor, and place it into a medium sized bowl with the Baking Powder and Salt. Stir Well.
  5. Return the blender / food processor back to its base, and add in the diced Mango and drained Medjool Dates. Blend until a thick, smooth paste forms. If your Mango is not juicy enough, add in some water in 1 tbsp increments until you are able to do this.
  6. Add the Date and Mango Puree to the bowl of dry ingredients, along with the Almond Butter or Tahini, Vanilla Extract, and Zucchini. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  7. Spread the mixture evenly into a greased or lined 8 x 8 pan, and bake at 350F for 28 – 30 minutes.
  8. Once baked, remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan before slicing. Store in an airtight container in at room temperature for up to 5 days, in the fridge for up to 10, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

Notes

To prepare the Zucchini, pack 1/2 of a cup full of shredded wet zucchini, then squeeze out the liquid using a paper towel. Be sure to peel the Zucchini before you shred it if you don’t want streaks of green in the blondies!
