Notes
These brownies are not a heavy chocolate-fudgy consistency. They are more cake-like however they are very light and incredibly moist.
If you prefer a stronger chocolate flavour and maybe a little sweeter, fold through some chocolate pieces with the other ingredients.

One thing I should have mentioned in the recipe was that once you have grated your zucchini, you will probably find it quite wet, so squeeze out as much of the moisture as possible before mixing with the other ingredients. Otherwise the mixture may be too wet.
