I am called "THE BAKER" by friends and family....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER have I received so many compliments on, and recipe requests as I have for these delicious bars. I've made them 4 times in 2 weeks ! I used currants because didn't have any dates--worked fine. Also--using quality cinnamon (and adding extra) brought many inquires as to the "special ingredient" in the icing. Thanks for a new favorite !!!

Very moist. I added cranberries (dried) because I didn't have dates and added chocolate chips. I would not do cranberries again but otherwise very good!

Four stars instead of five for two reasons: These are definitely not "cookie bars"...it's cake. Second, I didn't necessarily care for the dried fruit...it wasn't bad, just not my favorite addition. I'm absolutely making it again, but next time I'm dropping the raisins and dates, baking it in cake pans, and trying it topped with some sort of coconut pecan-type icing. I think that would be out of this world! All in all, if you're a fan of zucchini bread/cake, this is definitely worth trying! (By the way, I made a half batch in a square pan, and 30 minutes was a perfect baking time.)
