Change up your usual zucchini bread treats with these amazingly good Cinnamon Frosted Zucchini bars! Covered in a thin glaze of cinnamon icing, these bars are extra delicious paired with a hot cup of coffee.

Ingredients

For the Bars:

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups grated zucchini

For the Frosting:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and both sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until blended.
  2. Mix in flour, cinnamon and baking powder JUST until combined. Fold in zucchini.
  3. Pour into a greased jelly roll pan (15x10x1-inch) and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
  4. While baking, prepare frosting. Mix powdered sugar, cinnamon, melted butter vanilla and milk until creamy. Add milk if necessary to get desired consistency.
  5. Cool zucchini bars and frost. Cut into squares, serve, and eat!

Notes

  • Grated Zucchini: To grate zucchini, cut off the ends, slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and remove as many of the seeds as possible. Then use a large box grater to grate the insides into shreds. You can also use a food processor with grater attachment!
  • STORAGE: To freeze zucchini bars, store in a freezer safe container with a sheet of parchment paper between each layer of bars. You can also freeze them in individual portions double wrapped in foil and saran wrap.
  • Nuts. Adding chopped walnuts or pecans would be delicious in our zucchini bar recipe! I would start with ½ cup-1 cup of chopped nuts.
