    My family enjoys these bars, I make them often with my garden zucchini in the fall season, the frosting makes a lot you can reduce to half if desired :)

      I had a few zucchini in my refrigerator and I came across this recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe calls for. I have to say going into the oven it didn't look very good, but oh does this taste yummy!!! My daughter didn't think she was going to like it, but she loves it! Thank you for sharing!!

      I found this recipe while searching for a way to hide veggies from my 6 yr old. I made a few revisions just to lower the calories a bit. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups and used sugar/splenda blend. I also reduced the oil to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Next time I may try increasing the oats and decrease the flour a bit. I thought they were very good and the kids ate it without the frosting!

      Let me start by saying that I had my reservations... The batter going into the oven is less than appetizing looking. Then, I baked it for 15 minutes and it was still batter. I added another 5 minutes and still it wasn't done. It took about 25 minutes for it to come out. Then, the frosting recipe makes way too much. The frosting was too thick on the bars and overwhelmed the flavor. Having said all that, I took these into work for a co-worker's birthday and they flew out of the pan. They were moist and delicious. I agree with the other reviewer... halve the recipe for the frosting. It was delicious but too much. I am still giving it 5 stars since all of my co-workers would slap me silly if I gave it anything less! ;)
