Zucchini Bars

Anyone who has tried Zucchini Bread will appreciate this use for that end of season plethora of green squash.  Recipes such as this are great, especially for zucchini that has grown too large to eat in large pieces.  Don’t tell anyone it is zucchini if they don’t like it.  It is very similar to banana bread – nice and moist.
