Ingredients

Squares

Frosting

  • 1/2 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

Squares

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Grease a 11x7 baking pan. I lined with parchment paper and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray as well. That makes it easier for me to pull the bars out to cut.
  • In a large bowl, add oil, granulated and brown sugar, peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix with a hand mixer on medium until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, add in flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir together with a spatula.
  • Combined the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Mix with a hand mixer on low until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add in the zucchini and carrots and stir until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Pour out onto a prepared pan. Spread out evenly with a spatula.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 45 - 47 minutes or until done. Place a toothpick into the center of the squares, if it comes out with moist crumbs it's done. If batter comes out, let it bake longer.
  • Let cool and frost.

Frosting

  • In a large bowl, combine butter and cream cheese. Beat with the hand mixer until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Add in vanilla and powdered sugar. Mix on low until the powdered sugar is well incorporated. Turn mixer on high and mix for an additional minute or two.
  • Spread on cooled bars.
