Oatmeal zucchini bars with chocolate

372

The best way how to enjoy daily snack is to have something healthier and still sweet. I am a person who loves to have something little between lunch and dinner, and this recipe is just a perfect solution for everyone who prefers homemade snacks. I am sure there are plenty of delicious and nutritious balanced snacks in the shops, but I like it when I can prepare something new and share it with you.

Great snack or breakfast

These healthy zucchini bars are amazing not only as a snack but also as good options for breakfast on to go. I was trying to find some new breakfast ideas and something a little bit sweet, but with good nutrition and because of rolled oats, banana, honey, zucchini, and dark chocolate, these bars are a balanced breakfast. 

Gluten-free

This gluten free recipe is perfect for everyone who is struggling with stomach discomfort. Also, some specific weight-loss diets are preferring meals without gluten, because of easier digesting and faster metabolism. From my personal experience, I used to be following a gluten-free and low carb diet and I have to say it helped me to keep my stomach flat and definitely I could to feel improvement with my digestion. I am not following those diets anymore as I found myself to be enjoying a vegetarian diet more, but I can recommend to everyone to try it. It’s interesting.

Storing the bars

You can keep them in the container inside the fridge for a few days and still, they will be still tasty and soft. I wouldn’t recommend to keep them inside the freezer as the frozen process can change the structure of the bars.
