I made these bars last week to use some of my many zucchini! This recipe is a family favorite that I have been making for years and originally comes from my mom who has been making these for as long as I can remember.

Zucchini Bars

1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups zucchini, shredded
2 eggs
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup coconut

Grease 15x10 pan. Cream sugars, vanilla, and butter. Add eggs, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in
zucchini, walnuts and coconut. Spread in pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool and then frost.

Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
