These Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bars are unlike most zucchini treat recipes that are laden with oil and sugar. Yet they are so delicious you won’t miss the flour, sugar or dairy. And did I mention they are vegan?
You can use your favorite type of summer squash to make this recipe. I actually used some yellow crookneck because it hides a little easier that the green zucchini. Mr. Picky will still eat it if I tell him it has zucchini in it, but if he can see it he won’t.
The almond butter and flour add a delightful nutty taste that pairs nicely with the chocolate. Then again, almost anything pairs nicely with chocolate.
In case you have a garden full of zucchini, here are some of my other favorite zucchini recipes:
