    OMG! Extremely moist and flavorful....wondered if I under baked, but didn’t. 8x8 glass dish, 30 min. , substituted 1/4 agave nectar for some sugar, used 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour for some flour and added 1 tsp. Espresso powder.

    Great. I used an 8x8 square glass dish. I substituted 1c each Bob’s Red Mill GF Pancake Mix and Cup4Cup GF Wholesome Flour (whole grain) for the flour in recipe. I included sugar, baking powder and salt as called for in the recipe despite the sugar, baking powder and salt in the pancake mix. Worked out fine, but more cake-like texture than the next two experiments. Next time I will add walnuts to the batter. Second test: 1 1/2 maple syrup for sugar. 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking powder to account for the amount provided in pancake mix. Third time, for sugar I used 3/4c maple syrup and 3/4c raw cane turbinado sugar. This version was the most fudge-like brownie texture.

    Absolutely delicious, all my courgette hating children ate them up! You do need to add water to the batter though - as others have said, it’s very dry and crumbly. Maybe don’t bother squeezing the water out of the courgettes as I had to add quite a lot to make it like batter.

    Mixture seemed quite dry so I added a little bit more oil. A nice healthy treat which went great with yoghurt!

    I added half a cup of water to the batter as it was very dry, almost powdery, despite the zucchini. End result was very tasty though. Took a tray load to a party and they disappeared, a sign of a good recipe!

    Well, after mixing all the ingredients, the 'batter' was super dry it wouldn't even come together. Maybe if I let it sit for a while the zucchini would have moisten the batter, but the directions did not say to do that. SO, I added about 1/4 cup of applesauce (actually one squeezable unsweetened applesauce pouch), and that was the perfect addition to make the mix an actual batter. The end result was a super moist brownie that my 3 and 7 year old (and I) devoured!! My husband thought it was a bit too moist, but he didn't let it cool before he ate the first piece. I'm keeping recipe to make again!!
