- 1/3 cup unsweetened cacao powder
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup finely shredded zucchini (skin left on)
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees f.
Spray 8x8 brownie pan with nonstick spray, or wipe pan with coconut oil.
Pulse oats in blender or food processor until finely ground.
