Preheat your oven to 350F degrees. Lightly grease the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder and salt until well blended.
In another bowl stir together the eggs, shredded carrots, shredded zucchini, brown sugar, raisins, walnuts, oil, pureed carrots and honey until well blended.
Stir the carrot zucchini mixture into the flour mixture just until blended.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
Sprinkle the cooled carrot zucchini bars with a dusting of powdered sugar or spread with citrus cream cheese frosting made with reduced-fat cream cheese.
To make the icing, in a mixing bowl, beat the reduced-fat cream cheese, sugar, juice and zest until fluffy.
