Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a large rimmed baking sheet; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the 3/4 cup softened butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar and baking soda. Beat until fluffy. Add eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat on low speed until combined. Add flour. Beat until combined.

Stir in zucchini, coconut and walnuts. Spread zucchini mixture in the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 15 squares, then cut diagonally to form 30 triangle-shaped bars.

Step 3

In a small mixing bowl, stir together confectioners’ sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough milk to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle over the cooled bars.
