Cinnamon Frosted Zucchini Bars

Want to know what my new addiction is today other than these super, wonderful bars I'm sharing with you? Pinterest. I had heard about it, saw posts on Twitter about it and then finally visited the website. I requested an invite on the website and waited to no avail. That's when Lauren at Lauren's Latest hooked me up with an invite. Isn't she a sweetie? Go check out her amazing blog if you haven't already too! Well, maybe she isn't a sweetie. She's got me hooked. I'm "pinning" crazy now. If you haven't checked out this new found love of mine head there and do it now. I'm ordering you. I've warned you it's addicting so don't yell at me when you are also addicted. That's just not in the rules. If you need an invite let me know and I can hook you up with one and share the Pinterest love. I like how I can pin all the recipes I want to try on different boards and I don't have to save them to my favorites list and then I have to remember what computer I saved them on and it's just becomes a mess. I've been looking for something like this. The more organized my recipes are the more happy I am. I'm a dork, but hey at least I'm ok with it! Now onto my second addiction for the day. Wow it is not good to have this many addictions in one day. I was a bit hesitant about the Cinnamon frosting in this recipe but boy am I glad I made it like this instead of doing a plain 'ol frosting. It gives a zip to the bars that is just a bit different but totally yummy. The zucchini keeps these bad boys super moist and that's key in a bar in my opinion. Enjoy!

Your cinnamon frosted zucchini bars are beautiful! I hate that I'm allergic to cinnamon, because zucchini goes so well with it....Beautiful photos!

This looks really great! I have a few zucchini in the garden right now that I'm waiting to mature. Bookmarking this!
Ann, can't you use nutmeg in place of the cinnamon? Obviously not as much as the recipe calls for, but still...
