Ingredients

  • 3 cups grated zucchini about 1.5-2 zucchinis
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup regular chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 15×10.5″ pan with non-stick spray.
  • Wash zucchini, cut the ends off and grate. Set aside.
  • Combine brown sugar, butter, milk and eggs. Stir until smooth.
  • Add in dry ingredients and stir. Fold in zucchini and 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle 1/2 cup regular chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake 30 minutes, until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into squares.

Notes

Yields 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.
