READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Lainey39

These decadent brownies have a full-serving of vegetables plus plenty of vitamins and fiber thanks to the shredded zucchini mixed into the batter. Recipe is from a local magazine. The number of servings really depends on the size they are cut.

These babies were very moist, yes, almost decadent. Although I have decided that I prefer them warm over room temperature. I didn't have the walnuts so I couldn't add them, but I think they would be a wonderful addition! Made for Newest Zaar tag. **Update, I made these on Sunday afternoon and by Wednesday morning they were moldy, maybe they should be stored in the fridge?
