Carrot and Zucchini Bars with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

So for today’s zucchini recipe I tried a dessert.  It is the only way I can get my family to eat zucchini.  It has to be in something sweet like cakes, muffins, breads, etc.  I like the idea of making something with both zucchini and carrots in it.  These bars were a fun change.  I loved the ginger in them and the lemon frosting!  These bars are full of texture.  I did not peel my zucchini because I wanted to see the color, but you could always do that if you need it to be hidden!

This is the perfect recipe for getting picky eaters to eat their vegetables. It’s packed with over two cups of shredded vegetables! It’s also a lot healthier than traditional sweet zucchini/carrot cakes or bars, with less sugar and sweeteners, but it’s soo yummy that your whole family will gobble it up.  If you want it even healthier, you can omit the cream cheese frosting, but I love the extra sweetness that the frosting adds! The lemon in the cream cheese frosting is the perfect compliment to the ginger and cinnamon in the bars! Enjoy!
