I am giving this recipe four stars because the instructions are clear and easy to follow and is such a treat! I had to make a few modifications due to my health concerns. I've made this recipe twice now;the first time, I only substituted the 3/4 c. w/about a cup of pure canned pumpkin. I found it to be very sweet and did not bother with the glaze icing. Last night, I modified the 1/2 c. white sugar + 1/2 c. brown sugar- and only used 1/4 c. of Splenda (I really wanted to try coconut sugar but did not have any on hand.) Also, instead of the 3/4 c. Margarine, I used about 1 c. canned pure pumpkin. Instead of all-purpose four, I used half white whole wheat and whole wheat four. I did not have raisins on hand and used currants instead. For the icing, I used an old recipe and creamed some light Country Crock butter, 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and Splenda and sprinkled toasted walnuts (a must!) on top. The end product is bar-like and moist. I appreciate this recipe because it is easy to follow and because you can't go wrong with dates, raisins, coconut, and zucchini in a mix!
