Low Sugar Zucchini Cookie Bars
It’s Meals On Monday, I decided to stop putting it in the title it’s just to looonnnnggggg! As long as we have fresh zucchini from the garden I will be sharing more zucchini recipes,like this yummy Low Sugar Zucchini Cookie Bars recipe, giggle 🙂
What You Need:
2 Cups zucchini, skin and seed removed (very finely shredded, it should look like applesauce)
4 Cups flour (sifted)
1 Cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 ¾ Cup Splenda
¼ Cup Sugar
2 Eggs (beaten)
2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger ( dry)
½ tsp Nutmeg (dry)
2 tsp Baking soda
½ tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 Cup applesauce
½ Cup raisins ( or chocolate chips see Katie’s Tid Bit below*)
Large mixing bowl
Medium mixing bowl
17 x 12 Baking sheet (bar pan)
Before You Start Preheat oven to 350˚ and line baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
Let’s Make It! Put all of the dry ingredients( except the sugar and splenda) in a large mixing bowl and combine using a fork. In a medium bowl combine shredded zucchini, sugar, splenda, applesauce,cooking oil, egg, butter and mix well using a fork (or electric mixer on low). Slowly pour into dry ingredients mixing a little at a time until well combined, add raisins. Mix well. Spread into prepared baking pan. Cook for approximately 30 minute( until lightly browned) Test for doneness with a toothpick ( toothpick comes out clean when poked ). Cool in the pan then cut into bars.
**Katie’s Tid Bits** if you prefer it sweeter. Skip the Splenda and use sugar instead. Try substituting chocolate chips for the raisins too!
Makes about 30-48 bars
I use a pizza cutter to cut my bars! Will you try this recipe with raisins or with chocolate chips, or both?
They sound yummy. Like your pizza cutter idea!
Thank you for sharing your recipe and this yummy goodness at Potpourri Friday at 2805!

I don’t use sugar nor splenda, but I am going to try these cookie bars using xylitol. Not sure if it will work or not.

What a very lovely idea for a bar cookie! I will probably try raisins.
Thanks for the inspiration, again!
I’m imagining it, and I think raisins would be best! I might try to adapt this to my almond flour and make it locarb!
