Peanut Butter Zucchini Breakfast Bars

Not just a breakfast bar, but perfect for an afternoon snack, these Peanut Butter Zucchini Breakfast Bars are a great way to load up on healthy nutritious vegetables and nuts.

  • 2-3 very ripe, organic bananas (about 1 cup mashed)
  • 1 cup shredded organic zucchini
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of your choice (date syrup, molasses, honey)
  • 1 ½ cup Betty Lou’s powdered peanut butter
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Nuts, Seeds, Berries!!! (Be Creative!)

Make it like this...

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray 9x9 baking dish with nonstick spray (I used coconut oil)
  2. Squeeze the liquid out of your shredded zucchini. (You can use cheesecloth or paper towels)
  3. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in the zucchini, sweetener (I used 1 ½ Tbsp molasses, 1 ½ Tbsp honey) and vanilla.
  4. Add the gluten-free oats, peanut butter powder, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. (To make less salty, add less salt! I also threw in some nutmeg for flavor)
  5. Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish
  6. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, depending how soft you like your bars
  7. Remove bars and let cool. For a little more peanut butter flavor, drizzle with more Just Great Stuff!
