Zucchini Brownies

When I saw a recent post by Camilla, at Power Hungry, I had to try out my version of them. For one, Alistaire could enjoy them. And second….it helped use up my every growing pile of summer squash in the fridge. Allergy friendly. Gluten-free. Plant-Based. Gardening friendly. There you go!
