Zucchini Cobbler/bars

I picked this up from Taste of Home and it looks pretty easy to de-carb. Substitute the sugar for splenda/stevia mix... crust made with almond flour... It looks really good...

Ingredients
8 cups chopped seeded peeled zucchini (about 3 pounds)
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

CRUST:
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
•In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook and stir zucchini and
lemon juice for 15-20 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Add the
sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; simmer 1 minute longer. Remove from the
heat; set aside.

•For crust, combine the flour and sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until
the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir 1/2 cup into zucchini
mixture. Press half of remaining crust mixture into a greased 15-in.
x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Spread zucchini over top; crumble
remaining crust mixture over zucchini. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

•Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Yield:
16-20 servings.

I have a very similar recipe - no one knew it was zucchini. Tastes like apple crisp! Mine was opposite, with the filling in first and then a crumbled topping, though.

I'm with Carski! I've made many cobblers with almond topping.

Mary yours sounds great for a crust one. Thanks

NEVER be sorry for asking questions! If we don't ask, we never find out what we need to know and your questions could be helping someone else find an answer, too!!

Is your recipe posted somewhere, Charski? I'd like to try it. Thanks!

This is it:

Char's Mock Apple Crisp (zucchini!)

1 jumbo zucchini (I used 3 medium ones)
1 cup Splenda (or equivalent sweetener of your choice)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon Thicken Thin Not/Starch or other thickener such as guar gum

Topping:

1 cup almond or hazelnut meal
1/3 cup Splenda (I like Diabetisweet Brown in this)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup oat bran
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350*. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel and trim zucchini - slice lengthwise into quarters. Remove seeds. Slice into slices that resemble apple slices. You should have about 6 cups of slices.

Boil the zucchini slices for 3 minutes. Drain well.

Mix together 1 cup Splenda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 tablespoon thickener. Sprinkle over zucchini slices and toss to coat evenly. Place zucchini slices in a greased 8 or 9 inch square baking pan.

Mix together topping ingredients to make a crumb topping. Distribute evenly over zucchini. Bake for 45 minutes, until topping is browned and crispy.

May be served warm, cold, or room temp. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Yummy with some heavy cream, whipped cream, or LC ice cream!

Sometimes I substitute peeled and cubed chayote squash for the zukes. Either way it's good stuff.

Thanks from me, too, Char! It really does sound great! I'll be at the farm market tomorrow buying zucchini!

Linda

P.S. Is the oat bran easy to find?

Sorry, I just now got back to this thread - Trader Joe's carries oat bran, so does Whole Foods; I've also used raw wheat bran when that's all I had though!
