I made a few changes to the recipe based on some of the other comments, but unfortunately they didn't turn out. I added a banana because some people noted that the recipe was too dry and I also added an egg and used whole wheat flour instead of white. The batter was too wet and it didn't cook through in 30 minutes. I continued to cook for another 30 minutes, but they still didn't turn out. I will follow the recipe next time and see if they turn out.
Awesome recipe! I made this a couple times this summer, so far. I plan to make it yet again before my Zucchini's are gone. Satified my Choc. cravings and was a great snack that kept me full after work and till early evening suppers were ready! The only thing I changed was omitting the sugar and used a full cup for splenda baking mix instead. Still sweet enough for the whole family and nutritious enough for me! THANK YOU!!
I enjoyed these and brought half the batch to a party where my friends although skeptical at first enjoyed them too. Or they were just to drunk to know better. I found the zucchini added alot of liquid to mixture but I still add some applesace too.
