Hey, everyone! I’ve been so excited to share with you these amazing chocolate chip cookies- with zucchini and oats! Doesn’t that sound like an amazing mix? It’s slightly sweet, but still a good, hearty snack. Definitely a winner here!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (from about 1 – 1 1/2 medium)
1 cup quick oats
1 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whip together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Add zucchini and with mixer set on low speed, slowly add in flour mixture. Stir in oats, walnuts and chocolate chips (I reserved 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips to press into the tops of dough balls before baking, just for looks which is totally optional).
Shape dough into balls, spacing cookies 2-inches apart. Bake for 11 – 14 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
I love using zucchini in lots of recipes. What’s your favorite recipe with zucchini in it?
