This is one of my favorite recipes using zucchini- The ingredients make the bars moist and chewy.
A friend of mine said she loved these because it gave her a chance to use up all the zucchini she has and that these freeze well. Kathy is a great cook and baker on her own and has shared many of her recipes with me too. I'll share some of them later- the ones that are not already posted by others. lol
