Spiced Zucchini Bars w/ Cranberries

I said I'd post the recipe I used for my partially dried cranberries. Here it is. I found this a while back on a really yummy looking blog - Culinary in the Desert - and then I forgot about it. I found the recipe again the other day, and finally made these. They are amazing! I will be making them again.

I also added the blog to my blog list, so I won't forget to go back and see what else is cooking over there.

Spiced Zucchini Bars with Cranberries and Pecans
(Adapted from One Smart Cookie)

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar until creamy. Mix in egg and vanilla - beat until smooth.

In a small bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, and salt.

Add the flour mixture along with the grated zucchini into the butter mixture. Stir just until combined and then gently fold in the dried cranberries and pecans .

Scoop batter into an 8x8" baking dish lightly coated with nonstick spray. Bake until the top springs back when lightly touched near the center, about 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
