Rich and chewy, these Butterscotch Zucchini Blondies are sure to be a favorite. A seriously tasty way to use up your zucchini!

Since we just moved into our house a few weeks ago, we don’t have a garden. Thankfully my parents shared some of their zucchini with us. My kids will actually eat it steamed with butter, salt, and pepper, but they really love it when I grate it up and use it in baked goods!

Browned butter and brown sugar make these butterscotch zucchini blondies absolutely irresistible. Everyone loves them!

Have extra zucchini? Make these butterscotch zucchini blondies. They are some of the tastiest bars you will ever eat!

The brown sugar gives them a nice caramel flavor and adds to the chewiness factor. I browned the butter for an extra depth of flavor. It makes them extra yummy, but if you are in a pinch, you can just melt the butter.

Chewy and rich, these butterscotch zucchini blondies are sure to become a favorite!

My family gobbled these bars up, and I the ones I sent to work with my husband got rave reviews as well. Kids and adults alike love these tasty zucchini bars!

After one bite of these butterscotch zucchini blondies, you will never wonder what to do with your extra zucchini. They are incredible!

    These were awesome! Second time around I used a combo of white chocolate chips and sea salt caramel chips. AMAZING! Will continue to make these!

  2. Made these just like the recipe said and they turned out like coffee cake not at all like blondies or the picture. They are good but not at all what I was hoping for.

  3. Dying to try these! Love the combo of zucchini and butterscotch!

  4. These look delicious! I love blondies. Great idea to use zucchini in them. Can’t wait to try!

  5. These sound so good!!
