Yummy yummy bars which a former co-worker used to bring in years ago. Probably my first experience eating zucchini. And I especially like the frosting, which is NOT made with cream cheese! Good eating.

This is a very good zucchini cake recipe. It is sweet enough, but not too sweet. It is very moist and it has a wonderful texture. I also enjoyed the frosting. Thank you for sharing this recipe ReeLani. This one is a keeper...:))

ReeLani I enjoyed these bars, but found them to be a bit dry, and more cake-like (than like a bar). The coconut tasted great in these bars, and I really liked the cinnnamon in the frosting, but ReeLani I should inform you, I found I needed to add more confectioners' sugar when making the frosting, plus I had to make one and a half times the amount of frosting, otherwise there wasn't enough frosting to frost these bars. I also found I only needed to bake the bars in the oven for about 28 minutes. Thank you ReeLani for sharing your zucchini bar recipe with fellow Zaar members, they were good!

I made these bars last night and everyone loved them. Easy to make and easy to eat. I had to print out the recipe for people at work. I'll make these again and again. The batter is thick so be sure to spread evenly in the pan. I sprayed the pan with pam also.
