Zucchini & Chocolate Bars
Yes, another Zucchini recipe!!! I told you the garden had tons of them so I had to keep using these big huge zucchinis for something!!! The best part of this recipe is there is NO OIL! in my actual Zucchini Bread recipe I changed the oil for Applesauce but this doesn’t need either…. But there is butter! Oops. This is a great recipe if you want something with chocolate but not something super rich. It has a great balance between a bread and a dessert to make a perfect light dessert bar. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need…..
2 Cups Zucchini, Grated
3/4 Cups Butter
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 Cups Flour or Whole wheat flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
Mini Loaf pan or you can make bars with a 9×13 inch pan
First, preheat oven to 350° F. Also Shred your zucchini. I peel it first with a potato peeler then put it in my food processor. Or you can shred it your self with a cheese grader.
Cream your softened butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in your mixer.
Next, add your dry ingredients.
Now fold in your zucchini and chocolate chips.
Grease a 9×13 inch pan and pour the batter in. Bake for 35 minutes.
I Placed mine in a mini Loaf tin and baked for 28 minutes. They made perfect Bars with no cutting!!!
Let them cool and Watch Out because these are supppppppper moist! Enjoy!
