Lucia’s Zucchini Bars

These chewy bars are very satisfying for a breakfast, or to stick in a brown bag lunch, or even to serve as dessert, maybe with a bit of blended frozen fruit ice cream on top! Serve with fresh fruit, or spread with a little nut butter, or crumble into a bowl and eat with milk! Lots of things you can do with these bars and you won’t even notice they have so much zucchini in them!
