Homemade Zucchini And Carrot Bars are fantastic finger foods for babies, kids and adults! These bars are easy to make and so delicious.

Homemade Zucchini And Carrot Bars
Eat real food made with fresh ingredients and offer your family healthy choices.

Stay away from processed food, and cook your own snacks at home.  Most commercial snacks are full of preservatives and refined sugars. There is nothing better for your family’s health than making your own food.

I started making these bars for my son when he was a toddler. They are just perfect for babies who are ready for some finger foods. My daughter enjoys these bars since she was approximately 9 months old.

You can store your Homemade Zucchini and Carrot Bars in the refrigerator for several days. I prefer to eat mine warm, right out of the oven…..yum…..I love baking with zucchini. If you are also a zucchini lover and  interested in other easy to make recipes, please see The Best Homemade Zucchini Parmesan Chips. Really the best healthy chips!

Either way warm or cold these zucchini and carrot bars are yummy and perfect for a quick healthy snack.  I am sharing this great recipe from Jan Purser.

    Where is the recipe? All I see are ads.

  2. Lindsay says:

    What temp should the oven be set to?

  3. Erica says:

    Are these bars good for freezing?

    I do a very similar version of this that doesn’t require the first ‘cook in pan’ step, thus saving both time and washing up! Admittedly, mine doesn’t have parsnip, and has onion instead of shallots… but I bet it would work without that first cooking step. Worth trying?
