Zucchini Cinnamon Chip Granola Bars

Thank you, Protein Bars. I know you’re a candy bar, and you know you’re a candy bar, but I’m glad we can share in this lie together. This month’s Sourdough Surprises challenge reminded me of this Tonight Show Thank You Note—granola bars. I’m from Portland, Oregon so granola is not only a noun but a respectable adjective to me. Tasty granola bars are indeed a challenge. I made three batches that went to Izzy and the chickens before I finally, thank God, made these.

It works well to form a rough rectangle that is compacted and flat on top with a wooden spoon. Bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool down and cut it into triangle strips.

Simple, and sweet!

    1. Thanks, Shelley– Yes it is Zucchini season here in Minnesota, and I have been trying to figure out what to do with all the zucchini piling up in my kitchen. I think they work well as binding agents, and thought it would be as good as peanut butter in terms of texture. Worked great!

      1. That sounds very promising! I am excited to try it this coming summer (which will be here before we know it, hopefully! 🙂 ).

    1. Thanks so much! I just so dislike zucchini on its own that I’ve found all kinds of ways to sneak it into my baked goods.

  1. Oh my, do these look and sound amazing! I bet the pets loved getting the test batches, lucky dog and chickens 🙂
