Zucchini-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Zucchini-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hey everyone! You can now follow me on Instagram (follow link here). I’m a little behind but I’d love you to follow!!

Every summer we all see an abundance of zucchini recipes everywhere. Zucchini is very versatile with a simple mellow flavor so it can go in just about anything. So, why not add to cookies? You may think, oh no that’s taking it too far, but these taste just like zucchini cake or zucchini bread rather in cookie form. I’d say this is definitely one of the best uses I could ever think of for zucchini. Saute it, bake it or fry it – yes that’s always good. Put it in soup or toss it in as part of the main dish and yeah that’s quite delicious, but add it to cookies along with sweet cinnamon, chewy oats, crunchy pecans and a fair amount of chocolate chips and you have something unforgettable. Something just like what Grandma would have made. Good, homestyle, soft and flavorful cookies. Sometimes the old fashioned kind of recipes are just simply the best!
