Print Friendly, PDF & Email

LizzieB has come up with another ingenious way of working through the courgette glut with this tasty bars. The ingredients below make about 12 bars.

  • 30ml (1 fl oz) oil
  • 4 tbsp honey (or syrup)
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 150g (5¼oz) porridge oats
  • 110g (4oz) courgette, peeled and grated
  • 55g (2oz) apple, peeled and grated
  • 85g (3oz) chopped mixed nuts (or use a selection of seeds, chocolate chips, and dried fruits)
  • 55g (2oz) brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

1           Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F, Gas 4).

2           Melt the oil, honey and peanut butter in a pan on a low heat.

3           Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, then pour in the melted ingredients, stirring well until everything is combined.

4           Put the mixture into a greased 25cm x 25cm (10in x 10in) square baking tin and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown.

5           Remove from the oven and score the top, then leave to cool (in the tin) before cutting into squares.

Store the bars in an airtight container. They are not suitable for freezing.


If you are peanut-intolerant, replace the peanut butter with cashew nut butter or Nutella, or replace it with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of golden syrup if you want to eliminate nuts completely from the recipe.
