This is a such a simple recipe and a great way to use up extra zucchini. This recipe takes 3-4 medium size zucchini.
5 cups zucchini
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick softened butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar ( i like using 1/ cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, but either or is fine.)
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
Bake 375 35-40 minutes
Preheat oven to 375. Cut the zucchini into quarters the long way, then peel and scoop out the seeds. Now slice each spear to look like apple slices.
Place 5 cups of sliced zucchini into a sauce pan, and add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup lemon juice, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg.
Stir it all together so all the zucchini is coated, and cook 15-20 minutes until zucchini is tender, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, and pour the zucchini mixture into a glass pie pan or 8 x 8 casserole dish. Set aside while you prepare the topping.
In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, flour, sugar and rolled oats.
Gently mix the ingredients and sprinkle on top of the zucchini mixture.
Bake for 35-45 minutes. Until the top is golden brown. It's great served hot with a scoop of ice cream on the side. It tastes almost exactly like an apple crisp. Enjoy!
