This recipe is not "raw", because the recipe calls for Maple Syrup or Rice Malt Syrup. These syrups are not "raw" foods!

Here is why...

For a food to be considered "raw", some experts state it can not be heated up past 104°F - 120°F. Maple Syrup is boiled at around 219°F when it is being processed!

AND...

Brown rice syrup is heated up to 158° ­F! Rice malt syrup (RMS) is made from 100% organic brown rice.

💥 Rice Malt Syrup: the scoop!

This recipe can only be considered raw, if cold pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is used!

💥 Note: Virgin Coconut Oil: Whether it is raw or not depends on the production methods, if virgin coconut oil produced by expeller pressing, centrifuged or made from coconut milk by fermentation at high temperatures it cannot be regarded as raw and not suitable for raw diets. Only cold pressed (under 40⁰C / 104⁰F) virgin coconut oil can be classified as raw.

Hm, I love raw veggies and eat lots of them. Zucchini I usually don't like. Maybe this is worth a try.
