Woah. Hold up. A dessert with vegetables in it?! Just to reassure you, this dessert, while chock full of zucchini does, in fact, contain sugar and eggs and flour too. Whew, okay. We can all breathe now. Although there is no butter in this recipe, trust me if you can! And the applesauce? Don’t freak. It takes place of the majority of oil and offers the same rich taste and texture. Now that we got all of the scary (but delicious) details out of the way, we can talk about how good this bread is, you ready?
I like to describe these bars as a little bit mysterious and unexpected. Awesome and delicious, but definitely different. I know what you’re thinking, I really do. Promise. You’re saying how could savory rosemary possibly go well with something sweet? Rosemary is made for roasted potatoes, meats or proteins, artisan breads, and crackers. And you’re right. BUT. With a little help from the gods (sugar) we can transform a savory herb into a sweet, tangy, and light dessert.
