Not enough moisture in this recipe. It essentially bakes into a chocolate brick. I’d recommend either not squeezing water from zucchini or adding up to 1/4 cup of water (probably need to judge by eye) to get this closer to a firm batter than a dough.

Another thing you could do too is reduce the coconut flour as that type of flour soaks up a lot of liquid and moisture! Thank youu for bringing this to my attention!
