Zucchini Crisp

Whenever the zucchini start to get a little overwhelming, we like to have this dessert. It uses up a good amount of zucchini in one shot. 8 cups to be exact! It also really does taste quite like apple crisp -- and who doesn't love a good apple crisp!

8 cups peeled chopped zucchini*
1/2 cup granulated sugar or xylitol
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tsp all spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar or sucanat
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup margarine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Mix zucchini, white sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Pour mixture into baking dish.

Combine brown sugar, oats, and flour in another bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle over zucchini.

Bake in preheated oven until bubbly and zucchini is tender, 40 to 45 minutes.

* I remove the seeds, but I do keep the peel on when feeding just my family. If you're feeding some less than trusting zucchini haters, I recommend making them look as much like apple chunks as possible and then not saying a word.
