“Inspired by Rita--’s recipe Chocolate Zucchini Bread (Cake) (Chocolate Zucchini Bread(Cake)). I used raw hazelnuts and left the membranes on. You could substitute one cup all-purpose flour for the oat and soy flours. This is also good baked in an 8-inch square pan, like brownies, in which case you would reduce the baking time.”
