Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bars
"Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bars made with ripe zucchini and has all the zucchini bread flavors! One of my favorite easy zucchini recipes; these bars are a real crowd pleaser! I combined 2 fantastic recipes to make these Chocolate Chip Zucchini bars. They’re a modified version of my popular Chocolate Chip Banana Bars, only grated zucchini replaced the bananas and I added additional spices. The result? Incredible, cake-like snack bars that everyone enjoys. They’re great for anytime- breakfast, snacks, lunch, and even with a glass of milk for a treat."
NotesYields 24 bars. I like to make a batch, then cool, cut and freeze in individual baggies. Since they’re filling, they make a wonderful snack, breakfast or school lunch addition.
