I had a bunch of zucchini sitting in my fridge recently, so of course I decided to turn them into some Collagen Zucchini Brownies! You can eat them fresh out the oven, or if you want to make them last as a dessert “meal prep”, freeze them so you can enjoy them for a few weeks. (If you can make them last that long!)
