Honestly, I didn't have vanilla stevia...so i just added 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. If you have a hand blender, I would recommend using that instead of a food processor as I found that the food processor did not make the batter smooth enough. 

Tip: make sure the coconut oil is in liquid form first and add a more zucchini than it calls for (this will make it a little bit more moist and MORE VEGGIES!)

I put mine in a glass pie dish so it came out more like a cake and was finished cooking at about 25 min rather than 35-40.
