This was an easy recipe to prepare. The squares smelled wonderful while baking and both my husband and I enjoyed it with our morning coffee the past 2 days. We had it warm from the oven the first time and cold the next and it was good both ways, moist and with good texture and a good blending of flavours.

I did not add the coconut and I used one whole egg instead of 2 egg whites. I did not peel my zucchini. Just before baking I placed walnut halves on top of the batter. This recipe makes a nice big batch. I froze half as I like to have something I can pull out if we have unexpected company or to give to friends. Thanks for the great recipe.
