Chocolate Zucchini Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
My husband loved these soft cookies. And I appreciate that the recipe makes so many that I don't have to do it so often. They freeze beautifully.
I cut the recipe in half and substituted 2/3 c. Cocoa for 2/3 c. Flour using the nuts and the chocolate chips, and sprinkled them with confectioners sugar. My husband thought they were good.
These were good with the changes I made: no nuts, only dashes of cloves and nutmeg, 1 1/4 cup shredded zucchini, cooked 8 minutes and left to sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack, and milk chocolate chips. Thanks for another way to use zucchini!
We don't like nuts in our cookies so I omitted them and added more chocolate chips instead. These cookies were a hit!
Glad I read the reviews, I thought there was cocoa in the recipe. I substituted one cup cocoa for a cup of flour, swapped one cup white flour for wheat flour, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Brought cookies to work and they disappeared fast!
Will try this recipe again. Made them yesterday and it was hot and humid. Cookie were soft and cakey but stuck together on the plate. Not happy with results.

I read the reviews before baking these and decided to reduce the flour by 1 cup and add 1 cup cocoa. I reduced the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 tsp. (as I dislike nutmeg). I also omitted the nuts but still added the chocolate chips. This will be the first time ever that I think the chocolate chips actually didn't add much to the cookie. I think they tasted great without them and next time will not add them. These were wonderful even with all my alterations.
These are some of the best cookies you will ever wrap your lips around. Just don't tell them that they have zucchini in the cookies until after they try them. These cookies are wonderful with or without the chocolate chips or the nuts. They disapper with lightening speed. I just wish the fresh zucchini was available year round. But if you have the freezer space they freeze well.
This is a great recipe! My kids and family love them, I made them yesterday and now am making them again today because they were gone. A better title would be chocolate chip zucchini cookies. But, they are a wonderful cookie and a delicous way to use up garden zucchini.
