Zucchini Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe type: Cookie; Snack
Total time: 
Serves: 18-24
A chewy chocolate cookie version of your favourite zucchini bread.
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats (or 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats and 1 cup quick-cooking oats)
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (regular or miniature)
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until no streaks of flour remain. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
  3. Chill the dough in the fridge for the time it takes to line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When oven is ready, scoop the dough by Tablespoons onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden around the edges. Let cool slightly before lifting from the pan and setting them on a wire rack. Cool completely before serving.
