The benefits of eating in-season produce are well known: it not only tastes fresher, but is brimming with more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Summer squash (AKA zucchini) is a summertime favorite — with July and August being peak times to enjoy this versatile option full of vitamin A, vitamin C, and health-protecting carotenoids.

If you’re not sautéing or roasting your zucchini, try making this baked treat to help satisfy a sweet tooth and enjoy this seasonal favorite.
