Chocolate Zucchini Bars

My sister brought these bars on our camping trip. I thought they were amazing... so amazing I made two recipes of them today.

They are so moist and not too sweet. It's a win-win situation.

 Thank you sister!

Chocolate Zucchini Bars

2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together zucchini, sugar and oil.
Add remaining ingredients and stir with spoon, then spread
 into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Whipped Ganache Frosting

 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)

Combine in a small saucepan and heat until chocolate is smooth
and melted. Chill in refrigerator. Whip until peaks form
 and spread on cooled bars.

We had a lovely weekend camping with the Noel Farm Kids. To see a previous camping trip in 2011 go here.

My sister came to join us all the way from Indiana! The weekend was full of fun and delicious campfire food.

Baby Lauren

I had the honor of taking Lauren Kate's newborn photos. Her mom, Jessica, worked with me at Campbell Copy for years and she is also my husband's first cousin.

Meet her sweet baby, Lauren Kate.
