Rich Fudgy Zucchini Brownies with Frosting

Sherry Gentry


This recipe was developed by Sherry Bussa. I got it from her Weight Watchers site. (5 Points Value per serving) This is exactly how she wrote it. I had to make some slight modifications that I will post later. Not only are they healthy but they taste great. Hope you enjoy them too.
