I didn't have trouble with the bars being soggy, but I did make sure to squeeze all the excess liquid out of the zucchini first, which may account for the other reviewers soggy bars. I also didn't roll them in powdered sugar--they are quite sweet and don't really need it. A really yummy way to use up those leftover zucchinis!



We liked these bars. The flavour was great but as the other review says they were a little cake like and soggy. You can really taste the honey which I like. I substituted rasins for the dates. The powdered sugar absorbed so I dont think I'll use it next time. I also might try adding some oats in hopes that they will turn about a little more dense.



I altered this recipe based on what I did and didn't have. I added 1 1/2 cup dates, no nuts, no powdered sugar,and whole wheat flour instead of white. I squeezed the water out of the zucchini as mentioned in the other comments. This is a very tasty way to get rid of zucchin, and I will make it again. It is very moist, which did not bother me.
