A delightful way to use up zucchini

We only planted two zucchini plants this summer, but we still had far more than we needed. This cookie recipe has been a big hit in our home. When made with whole grain flour and dehydrated cane juice crystals, its a fairly healthy snack. I wanted to try making it with honey or at least half the amount of sugar, but that experiment will have to wait.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • 2 cups zucchini, grated
  • chocolate chips
Mix butter and sugar till fluffy. Beat in eggs. Mix in dry ingredients, then zucchini, and finally the chocolate chips. (I used about a cup of chips)

Place on greased cookie sheet, and bake about 10 to 12 minutes at 350.

They are a cake-like cookie, perfect for a filling afternoon snack!
