Peanut Butter Oat Bars with Chocolate Chips and Zucchini

The season has only begun and already it feels like there is an abundance of summer squash in my kitchen.  Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it!  But in case you were looking for something new to do with your zucchini (or that really big one in your share this week), here’s a recipe I came up with a couple of years ago.  We all shared some today in between distribution and washing onions.  It’s a keeper!

Peanut Butter Oat Bars with Chocolate Chips and zucchini

Cream together
1 c natural peanut butter
1/2 c butter
1/2 c sucanat
1/4 c turbinado

Add
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
3 c shredded zucchini

Stir in until combined
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Then stir in
1 1/2 c rolled oats
1 c chocolate chips

Spoon into prepared 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

  1. In case, like me, you don’t know what the third and fourth ingredients are:
    Sucnat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucanat
    and Turbinado: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_brown_sugar

    😉

  2. Sugar is fine with me, and I’d like to skip an extra trip to the store. Any suggestions on substitutions?

  3. You can use white sugar for the turbinado and brown sugar for the sucanat.

  4. what does a prepared pan mean? Greased?

  5. Prepared is buttered and floured or sprayed, whatever you do before you bake.
