I decided to try a Zucchini crisp recipe after reading about it online and finding a recipe in one of my cookbooks that sounded easy. I cut the sugar down a bit, but I did not want to change it too much as I did not know how it would taste. I was amazed!! The zucchini did not taste like zucchini anymore. It has the texture of apples! I think I am going to be able to get my boys to eat zucchini this way no problem, as long I as I do not tell them….
8 cups peeled, cubed zucchini
3/4 c. lemon juice (I found this odd at first, but it gives it a great flavor)
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 1/3 c. brown sugar (I cut it down to a cup..I think it could have been a bit more)
1 c. oatmeal
1 c. flour
2/3 c. butter
(I added some cinnamon to the topping)
Mix the cubed, peeled zucchini with the lemon juice, sugar, and spices. Put in a greased 9×13 pan. Combine topping ingredients, except for butter. Cut in the butter until crumbs.
Sprinkle over Zucchini….Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until zucchini is tender and the mixture is bubbly. I baked mine a bit longer as I wanted the topping for crunchy.
Yield 12-15 servings
