Homemade Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

After making what seems like a million loaves of zucchini bread I still had left over zucchini this week that needed to be used up.  I had thought about just freezing the shredded zucchini and saving it to make some more bread later on but I know that if I put it in my freezer that chances of me ever going back in there, unthawing it, and using it later were slim to none!! I just ended up throwing out a ton of it from last year after the only thing my garden really produced in the horrible drought and heat of last summer was zucchini.  I ended up with so much I didn’t know what to do with it all!

I decided to go ahead and turn some of the zucchini into my kids favorite thing to eat; Chocolate Chip Cookies!!  I used a pretty basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and added the zucchini for an extra added health benefit.  (Trying to get my kids to eat more vegetables is a slow coming adventure).

  1. Mmmm… they look fantastic. Might try making these with some rice flour instead to make m gluten free. Ever tried that? I made zucchini muffins the other day with gram flour, and they were quite hearty.
