One of the most difficult things about working with zucchini in a recipe is how to mix it into the batter.
Some recipes have you mix everything together, and others have you toss the shredded zucchini in the flour to coat it evenly BEFORE adding the wet ingredients. I have found that the later (mixing it with the flour first) really helps the structure of the final zucchini bar. I think that it makes a fluffier and better textured final product, but that is just my thoughts.
You can totally swap out any of the fruit for your favorite fruit!
Of course do the same with the frozen blueberries. Try raspberries or cherries
These Blueberry Zucchini Muffin Bars are really healthy and make a great healthy breakfast or trail bar. I often bring them with me camping and hiking.
