Zucchini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Three cheers for zucchini season! Oh, I might not be saying that in about a week when my zucchini explodes, but there is nothing like the excitement over the first few zucchini in your garden in the summer! This time next week I will most likely be dropping zucchini off on my neighbours doorsteps, ringing the bell and running away, but for now, I am exulting in the taste of summer squash!

I’m not sure if I have ever made a zucchini cookie before and I’m now regretting that I haven’t added them to my repertoire before this. Zucchini makes a lovely cakey cookie and while I am not usually a fan, these cookies are definitely something special!

Look at that little green speck. So cute!

Mike promptly ate four of these without breathing ( how the heck he stays so skinny I’ll never know) and declared them “Crack Cookies”. My daughter who initially turned up her nose at them because of the zucchini actually ate them and like them.

They are cakey, delicious little chocolate delights.

Could I even venture to stay they are healthy for you because of the zucchini? Oh, if only! If they can’t be healthy at least they can be a great way to use up some of the abundant zucchini that we find ourselves with this time of year!

I do have more zucchini recipes on the way! Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping in and reading everyone! Love you more than chocolate!

    I had shredded zucchini to use up. Is the “shredded” zucchini really grated ? I’m just concerned because of the size of the shred…

    These look delicious!  I’ve got quite a few zucchini growing in my garden, and I think I’ll designate some for these cookies!

    So if was to substitute carob chips for chocolate chips…I could then claim them as a “healthy” snack, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Those look amazing! I can’t believe you have zucchini ready already! Mine are still tiny. But then, I’ve never had much luck with zucchini!
