Zucchini Chocolate Bars (paleo)

I am not the biggest fan of the Paleo Diet… Since I don’t like meat, it’s hard for me to thrive on a diet of meat, veggies and nuts. Just not my cup-o-tea. What I do like from this lifestyle (I hate the term “diet.” In order for anything to become a success in your life, I think there needs to be a lifestyle change) is the cutting out of processed sugars, flours, and all-together, processed crap. I think that is valuable and should be adapted into most lifestyles, and something I am working on myself.

What I am a big fan of is zucchini and chocolate. When I saw these flourless zucchini brownies from Delighted Momma, I knew I wanted to try them. Every ingredient in the bars is simple and something I have on hand. I adapted the recipe a bit, but kept them pretty true to the original recipe.

Zucchini Chocolate Bars (adapted from this recipe)

  • 1/3 C almond butter
  • 1/3 C peanut butter
  • 1/3 C pumpkin
  • 1/3 C honey
  • 1.5 C finely chopped zucchini
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C dark chocolate chips

Do this: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 pan; mix all ingredients well and pour into greased pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes.

**These DO have a VERY zucchini-y taste… Not sure my thoughts on that… I think adding cocoa to the recipe would help… I’ll keep working on this recipe, trying to improve it!
