Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Oh, WOW!  A Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar with Vegetables in it, so I can sneak those into my kids?!!!!  YES!!!!!  These were delicious!!!  They are made with Oatmeal Flour (which is simply ground up oats,) so these are really healthy!  Yes, they have a bit of sugar in them, but really, a very small amount in comparison to what you'll be putting in your mouth.

I adapted Chocolate Covered Katie's Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe as the base batter for this and then doctored it up!  When you start with something excellent to begin with, you end up with something excellent!  

I cannot wait for you to try these!  Ready?!  Set?! BAKE!!!!

P.S.  I'm posting this post from my iPad for the first time EVER!  It was not easy, but I "think" I've done it.  If things aren't lined up, or look "off," I apologize in advance!

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

2 1/3 cup oat flour (throw some oats in a food processor and grind them into a powder)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups grated zucchini
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. milk
3/4-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions: (I used a 7 Quart Crock for this, but a 4 Quart or greater would be fine)
To make your oat flour, place your oats in a food processor and grind them into a powder.

Next in a bowl, place all of your dry ingredients.
 Mix them up.
 Now, add the zucchini, vanilla and vegetable oil.

 Start to mix it up and then add your milk, 1 Tbsp. at a time.  You don't want the batter to be too thin. If you feel it's thin enough after 1 Tbsp. stop there.  If not, add another.
 Pour the batter into your crock that is sprayed really well with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook on LOW for about 2 hours, with paper towel underneath the lid to absorb condensation, or until the edges are browned and the middle no longer looks "soupy."  It will continue to cook once you turn it off.  Let it cool completely before trying to cut and remove your "bars!"
