It is the holidays, and I'm sure at some point you will be enjoying some nice desserts that either yourself or others have made. The Chocolate Zucchini Slice is a healthier version of brownie that you could make for dessert! Zucchini is a rich source of Vitamin C. It is also a good source of potassium, manganese, magnesium, and Vitamin A!
