Low Fat Zucchini Brownies

I’ve been on the search for Vegan Brownies when I came across this recipe on Pinterest. It’s called Low Fat Zucchini Brownies and claims to be on the weight watchers plan! I’m more excited that they are vegan then low-fat. Also, I do like that Lilly is getting some sort of veggies in her when eating this brownie. (I only put the walnuts in an “L” shape – not for Lilly but I totally should have said that. I put them in an “L” shape because the section without walnuts Lilly can eat. She hasn’t eaten many nuts and I didn’t want anything to happen).

Fresh out of the oven, my husband put milk over his:

Oh, and when I bake, I can’t just do one thing. I hate turning on the oven for one small pan, so I always bake two things:
