Frosted Cinnamon Zucchini Bars Recipe

I figure you can never have enough recipes calling for zucchini! These cake-like bars with a cinnamon-flavored frosting are unbelievably good.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:60 servings


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in zucchini, coconut and nuts. Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. For frosting, combine confectioners' sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in butter, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Frost bars before cutting. Yield: about 5 dozen.

"Very disappointed in this bar cookie. Had zucchini, needed something for a bake sale but thought the bar lacked flavor. Even used choc frosting to help it - was not a hit."

"Awesome! I left out the walnuts. I'm not a big coconut fan but use it anyway and made a cream cheese frosting. It was a hit!"
