Gluten-Free Zucchini Brownies

Prepare to have your mind and taste-buds blown!

What you need:
1 cup of nut butter. (I used a combo of pecan butter, chocolate hazelnut spread, peanut butter, and white chocolate spread because I didn't want an overwhelming nutty flavor.)
1 1/2 cup of grated or chopped zucchini. (I used yellow squash and zucchini, finely grated.)
1 cup steel-cut oats (Granola blends would probably be good, too!)
1 egg (I can't eat eggs, so I substituted chia seeds -- 1 tbsp chia seeds & 3 tbsps water.)
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 cup of dark chocolate chips. 
*optional ingredient = 1/4 cup of raw honey if your nut butter isn't very sweet. I did NOT use honey in mine & they're perfect. 

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix everything together.
Pour into a greased 9x9 baking pan.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
