Zucchini brownies



  • This mixture is really dry before you add the zucchini. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips until well combined.
  • You don't need to squeeze moisture out of the grated zucchinis.
  • If you don't have chocolate chips, you can add 200g of melted chocolate in its place.
