"Another recipe to use up those pesky zucchini."

1 1/4 cups
dates, pitted and chopped
sifted confectioners' sugar
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!
This was OK, not something I will make again. Mine was cake like and a little soggy.
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.
I loved this recipe. It's not only easy to make, but easy to adjust to what's on hand. My husband is a baking "expert" and when he tested them he said this recipe is definitely a keeper! :-)
This is a very nice recipe! I made it exactly as presented and had no problems at all. The only thing I did not do was the powdered sugar. This is a tasty treat!
Good recipe, full of good stuff! I had to make a substitution because I had only 2 eggs, so I added a banana; then I realized I didn't have any butter, so I substitued olive oil, which was flavoured blood orange. As a result, the bars turned out very sweet, but with a lovely orange flavour. Looking forward to trying it again with the suggested ingredients.
Really good! I followed the recipe but I added about a half cup of oats and dark chocolate morsels. Soooo yummy!
