I too loved these bars. Mine were cake-like in consistency but moist. Not necessarily a pick up and eat bar as they were so moist they stuck to my fingers, which I had the pleasure to lick off. Actually better the second day. I did have to increase the cooking time to about 23 minutes. I will make these again.

WOW what a zucchini bar
Best is the word.
I made these for Thanksgiving
We always have zucchini bread but i wanted something different. I had so many I shared with the neighbors. They shared with their families and now everyone wants the recipe.

Thanks they were great
and I will make them every year as a new tradition.

Thanks Again

These were very good !!!
I did change the 1 cup oil and used 1/2 cup softened butter and 1/2 cup peanut oil..Also instead of 3/4 cup of oatmeal I used 1/2 cup oats,1/2 cup coconut and still
added some roasted chopped walnut and pecans...they really don't even NEED the frosting, but it is
hard for me to resist so...
