Carrot and Zucchini Bars
Hi there! My name is Lexi, and I’m the blogger over at Lexi’s Clean Kitchen. My website is a resource for healthy recipes that are made with real ingredients, while being free of gluten, grains, refined sugar, and dairy. I am so excited to be here on Delish Dish today adapting BHG’s Carrot and Zucchini Bars and making them paleo-friendly!
I stumbled across these Carrot and Zucchini Bars in the Better Homes and Garden Archive and knew I wanted to recreate them with a few clean eating adaptations! A delicious treat that has hidden veggies is perfect for everyone in your family, especially your kiddos!
I simply made a few changes to the original recipe making it gluten-free, grain-free, and free of refined sugar!
-I subbed regular flour for 1 1/2 cups almond flour plus 1 tbsp coconut flour
-I replaced brown sugar with organic coconut sugar and decreased the amount from 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup
-I omitted the cooking oil altogether
-I reduced the zucchini and carrots to 1/4-1/3 cup each
BONUS: I even made a batch with maple syrup instead of honey for a Maple Carrot and Zucchini Bar that everyone went absolutely crazy over!
Original recipe HERE.
The results were soft, moist, and flavorful bars that are absolutely the most perfect treat that you do not have to feel guilty about indulging in! I cannot wait to serve them up at my next family brunch. Find the original recipe here.
Happy Baking! – Lexi
