Cinnamon Frosted Zucchini Bars

Cinnamon frosted zucchini bars, easy and delicious!
My garden is amazing this year. Some years are always better than others. This is a good year. Especially for my zucchini. I am going to have to get creative to find some good uses, but this recipe is an old standby. It came from a friend at our previous church, and with just slight alterations, it is perfect!

Plus, it has two cups of zucchini so it’s healthy. I like to bake this on my jelly roll pan (large cookie sheet with sides). That way it’s nice and thin. Spread on a real thin layer of cinnamon frosting and it’s perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee, or as dessert.
