I hosted a playdate the other day and wanted to create a quick and easy spread of delicious but nutritious foods for everyone to enjoy. I always like to include some type of baked good when hosting these things, mostly because I love to bake but also because baked goods are always a hit. Instead of baking my typical banana bread or green goblin muffins (which is actually the perfect treat for this time of year), I decided to try something new: Zucchini Brownies.
I mean, what kid doesn't love brownies?!?
This recipe was a HIT! The kids loved them and the moms felt good knowing their kids were fuelling themselves with nutrients. It was truly a win-win.
Other foods I served (I wish I took a picture!): strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, carrots, celery, tomato, bell peppers and pretzels. It was a simple but colourful medley!
I hope you enjoy!
