In separate small bowl combine almond butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and eggs.
Add to dry mix and stir till combined. Fold in shredded zucchini and chocolate chips.

Storage & Recipe Notes..
Best stored in a covered container in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also freeze them in an airtight freezer bag for up to 3 months.
Thaw frozen brownies in the fridge overnight.
After grating the zucchini make sure to squeeze out any excess water before folding into the brownie mixture.
I find it easier to use room temperature nut butter, so if you have a fresh jar that usually works better...
Or you could warm it on the stove top to make it creamier if you have it refrigerated.
