Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies

If zucchini can find its way into quick breads, then it can definitely make its way into cookies. These Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies have been a favorite of mine for quite some time…they even won a Bake Off at work a few years ago!

No, they’re not the most decadent cookie out there, but the softness and wholesome consistency make them quite easy to eat. The generous amount of chocolate chips in each cookie satisfies a sweet tooth, while the green specs of zucchini and whole wheat flour eases any guilt. Although the traces of zucchini might not count for one serving of vegetables, somehow, its presence gives me permission to eat 3 in a row. I think you’ll find them equally addictive.
