These fudgy brownies haave a secret, they’re loaded with veggies. The celery helps keep these brownies extra moist and makes them a touch healthier.
Yes, that was not a typo. These brownies are made with celery! Why you might ask? After attending the Food Wine Conference and seeing all the baked goods make with celery you know I had to try it! Baking with zucchini and carrots is so common, I’ve also baked with parsnips, so you know I had to give this a try!
While celery doesn’t add a huge amount of nutrients to these brownies, anywhere I can get extra veggies is great for me! This recipe is so easy, I used Enjoy Life Food Brownie Mix. While the brownie mix is delicious on it’s own, it’s super moist with the added celery. I swapped the oil for Greek yogurt as well, which made a super fudgey brownie.
One thing I wasn’t expecting about this Enjoy Life mix was all the chocolate chips. These are truly a decadent treat. As much as I try to remove added sugars from my diet, I think everything in moderation is key. Plus while these brownies do have lots of sugar they’re also got 5 grams of protein, and the celery adds a bit of fiber.
