I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really been able to taste zucchini in baked goods. Sure you can see green flecks sometimes, but you can’t really taste it. To me, the zucchini seems to take on the flavor of everything else.
Because of this, I’ve never had an aversion to baked goods with zucchini in them and am always using up zucchini in different breads, cakes, and bars.
This is a good thing, because I would be missing out on these cream cheese frosted zucchini bars! These bars taste a lot like carrot cake with the spices and cream cheese frosting.
And you already know that carrot cake is one of mine and my husband’s favorites! I also added cinnamon and cloves to the frosting to give it a little extra spice. . . so good!
I am sure most of you won’t have much of a problem getting your hands on some zucchini. . .so go find some and make these zucchini bars!
They only take a little over 30 minutes from the time you start making them to the time they come out of the oven. Perfect for both the busy and the impatient! 😉
