This enigmatic eggplant recipe is a clever way to sneak an extra serving of vegetables into your dessert. Created by Tiina at the food blog My Berry Forrest, the homemade Fudgy Eggplant Brownies incorporate eggplants into a classic chocolate treat. Even though vegetables have been secretly smuggled in brownies before, including zucchini and pumpkin, this dish is unusual with its use of the aubergine.
The eggplant recipe is full of healthy ingredients, including organic eggplant, vegan dark chocolate, coconut oil and pitted dates. The gluten-free brownies are also topped with a yummy peanut butter frosting and are perfect for people with food allergies or dietary restrictions. The instructions can also be modified to turn the fudgy squares into a chocolate cake instead.
