Carrot and Zucchini Bars


I got this wonderful recipe from my friend, Julie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cream cheese frosting (recipe below)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, ginger, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together eggs, carrot, zucchini, brown sugar, raisins, walnuts, oil, honey, and vanilla. Add carrot mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Spread batter into an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Frost with cream cheese frosting. Cut into bars.
