Fruit And Nut Lauki Brownies Recipe

Sneaking a vegetable into the brownies not only adds some good things, it also adds valuable moistness into the brownies, as in this Fruit And Nut Lauki Brownies Recipe. This is an easy recipe that just needs a couple of bowls and spoons to put together, with a bit of grated lauki, and as much nuts and dry fruits as you can. Make sure you have apple sauce also, which is essentially the peeled apples, cooked and pureed. It also does not involve the painful process of squeezing out any moisture from the lauki, since the brownies batter can be prepared with the same rich moisture of grated lauki. Great for kids snack boxes and they can hardly tell a vegetable in there.

This Fruit And Nut Lauki Brownies Recipe can also be served as a party dessert after a meal like Orange Flavored Barbecue Chicken With Fresh Salad Recipe during a barbeque party at home, or after a meal of Fettuccine Pasta with Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce Recipe with your family and friends.
