Chocolate Zucchini Almond Butter Squares

I’m not much of a baker, so if you see a baked recipe on this blog, you better believe that it’s easy, fool proof, and absolutely delicious. Using just a bit of coconut sugar and some vegan chocolate chips gives these Chocolate Zucchini Almond Butter Squares all the sweetness they need – they’re just addictive enough!

These have the consistency of a fudgy brownie, with a cookie like flavor. They’re the best of both worlds, similar to a blondie! The zucchini is spiralized and chopped up, to avoid using a grater and offer a better zucchini consistency. It’s a little hack!

These squares save well – we enjoyed them for a few days. They can totally be crumbled up and served in a yogurt bowl, or heated up and served with ice cream as a dessert. They can work as a power snack, or just if you need a little something to brighten your mood.

If you want a different flavor but the same bar, try swapping in peanut butter! And for a little crunch, stir in 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. Make these squares your own!

Hi Lori! So happy you enjoyed these!
Amber says:
I modified this quite a bit. I had no chocolate chips, so I left them out. Instead of the sugar, I used a mashed banana and 3 finely chopped dates. It came out tasting like a cross between banana bread and zucchini bread. I'll definitely make them again, but I'll probably add in some cinnamon
Carly Glazer says:
Ooh sounds delicious!
