Summer Zucchini Protein Brownies

[yumprint-recipe id=’2′]It is officially summer! That calls for gardening and fresh recipes! My mom used to make the most delicious zucchini cookies when I was growing up. I figured why not put zucchini in some chocolate brownies? And why not add a little protein too?  Why not make them healthy!?

They turned out better than expected! Super chocolatey (of course) and moist with just the right amount of crumble a brownie should have.
