Wonderful recipe. I read about the concerns of too much oil. I added 1/3c of oil and 2/3c apple sauce. I also added some nutmeg and cinnamon.

I'm not sure if it's something I did wrong, but these did not come out at all. I cooked them until the edges burned, and the middle was still completely uncooked. I did try a little piece off ...

I have not tried this recipe yet, but I will say that if your bread/bars are not cooking up right, you really HAVE TO squeeze all the liquid out of the shredded zucchini BEFORE you measure it. ...

Very good recipe, although I have to say I would call this Zucchnini Cake due to the texture. To me, bars are more chewy. That being said, I have had rave reviews on this recipe. My family lov...

These are easy but I think there is too much oil in the recipe. I made to a T except I added some cinnamon. They taste good but they are too oily. It is extremely important to drain the zucchini...

These were great! I added nuts the 2nd time I made them. The frosting was a bit to buttery for my family so I decreased the butter and increased the cream cheese.

This was a great "starter" recipe! I added nutmeg, cinnamon and some applesauce and it tastes like a great, moist breakfast cake! The grownups love it can't see why the kids won't too!

Very, very good. I added vanilla to the frosting and also a little more cream cheese because the frosting was a little buttery. Overall a good recipe.

This recipe is really more like cake than cookies. It definitely needs some spices added. I made it exactly as written and it has a sweet, but oily taste. I will try it again.
