I wanted to make something yummy for the kiddos and use some of our abundant zucchini. I threw this together and it was SOOOOoooo good!
Nice enough to serve as a dessert for adults, healthy enough to serve as a snack or breakfast for the children.
While I used sweetened coconut, unsweetened would work fine and be a bit more healthy.
The zucchini has so much moisture that you don't any more than the bit of oil and egg.
