These mini-muffin brownies are perfect for an afterschool treat or healthy dessert. They stay moist with a secret ingredient—zucchini, which melts into each bite right alongside the chocolate chips, giving them a nutritional boost that you won't even notice.

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a mini-muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from heat. Add unsweetened chocolate and stir until melted. Add sugar and salt; stir until well combined. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing vigorously after each addition. Fold in flour until almost incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Using about 2 tablespoons per cup, spoon the batter into the prepared cups. They will be full.
  3. Bake until the brownie bites are firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the brownie bites to a wire rack when cool enough to handle.
