Garnish



You can actually make a delicious cream cheese frosting and sprinkle these with nuts, that's always an option and they are delicious that way.


I tend to stay away from all that extra sugar and my favorite way to eat these is plain myself.


The kids like the cinnamon sugar garnish on top, and my husband loves the powdered sugar, so I make half of each in the pan.


If you love frosted bars, go ahead and frost them with your favorite cream cheese frosting or you can use my recipe click here.

instructions:

How to cook Pumpkin Zucchini Spice Bars

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare one of the optional pans below greased or with parchment paper.
  3. Place in a large bowl to combine sugar, oil, and eggs until blended.
  4. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, all the spices, and canned pumpkin.
  5. Mix just until well incorporated.
  6. Fold in shredded zucchini and chocolate chips or raisins.
  7. Use the baking pans of choice below.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for the allotted time below for the pan used.
  9. Pour into a parchment-lined brownie pan level with the pan size 12 x 9 and cook for 30 minutes but use the toothpick method to see if the middle comes out clean.
  10. If you have any extra batter I usually make around 6 muffins.
  11. When bars are cooled, you can either garnish them with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
  12. Cut and store in a covered airtight container.
  13. These also freeze well up to 3 months.
  14. Pan Options:
  15. I used a brownie sized 12 x 9 pan lined with parchment to make bars for around 35 minutes..
  16. If making regular size muffins they should take approx 18-20 minutes, we made mini bundts that were rather full (in the pics) and they took 35 minutes.
  17. For loaf pans place the batter evenly between the two loaf pans. Bake for about 60-70
  18. For muffins, these are done when they spring back touched gently in the center.
  19. For bundt pan, pour into heavily greased bundt pan and bake around 50 to 60 minutes.
