Zucchini Bars

You gardeners will LOVE this recipe!  I have heard many of you complaining because you had so much zucchini and didn't know what to do with it all!!  This yummy sweet treat is quick, easy and delicious!  The best part is the amazing cinnamon glaze!  Beware:  you may eat the whole pan in one day :-)  Enjoy!


3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 3/4 cup flour
2 cups grated zucchini

*3/4 cup nuts (optional)


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 1/2 TB. milk
1 1/2 TB. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream butter and white and brown sugar together.  Add eggs, beat.  Add everything else except the zucchini and blend.  Fold in zucchini.  Pour into a lightly greased sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

After you remove the bars from the oven mix all of the ingredients for the glaze together.  Pour onto the bars while they are still warm, but not hot.
