Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 12 - 16 bars


  • 1/2 cup finely shredded zucchini (I used a food processor) (120g)
  • 1 cup almond butter or allergy-friendly sub
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp flour (I had success with spelt, white, sorghum, almond, and ww pastry)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar of choice or xylitol
  • 1/4 cup or more chocolate chips


  • Zucchini Bars Recipe: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside. In a medium bowl, gently heat the nut butter if it is not already stir-able, then stir in the zucchini and vanilla. Set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking soda, sugar of choice, and chocolate chips. Pour dry ingredients into wet and keep stirring—it may seem dry at first, so be sure to break up the nut butter and stop occasionally to scrape it off your spoon. It will eventually get gooey like cookie dough. Transfer the batter into the pan, and smooth down evenly. Press chocolate chips into the top if desired. Bake for 10 minutes. When you take the bars out, the top will look set but underneath they will still be quite undercooked. This is good! Leave the bars to cool for at least 20 minutes, and they will firm up during this time. They taste even sweeter the next day!
