This recipe has been kindly shared by fellow Springdellian Mira G., and I having tried it I can say that it’s delicious! I literally had to hide these from my other half before the entire lot was devoured. Check it out!
The bars by themselves contain shredded coconut, adding a wonderful flavor. You take this wonderful flavor, and add a cinnamon glaze that takes it over the top!
The final product is cut into small squares, so you can take your time and savor these one succulent square at a time.
I’ll definitely be adding this to the zucchini repertoire. Thanks so much for sharing, Mira!
For the bars-
- 3/4 cup butter/margarine
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups shredded zucchini (about 3 regular sized)
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
For the cinnamon glaze-
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter/margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cream butter in a large bowl. Beat in sugars gradually.
Add eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla, stir in flour and baking powder. Stir in zucchini, coconut and walnuts.
Spread evenly in a well-greased 15x10x1 1/2 pan.
Bake 40 minutes. Cool and make the glaze (in a small bowl beat glaze ingredients until smooth.)
Spread over the warm baked layer. Cut into 1 1/2 inch squares.
