Chewy Oatmeal Zucchini Cookies. | How Sweet It Is

Eddie says no.

When I asked if he wanted a zucchini cookie, he looked at me like I had five heads.

I kind of wish I had five heads because that would be five mouths and more room for COOKIES.

So I did it.

I put vegetables in a cookie.

That makes these a health food and a perfectly acceptable breakfast food.

Along with a balanced snack and maybe even a side dish at dinner.

Too far?

The thing is that I wanted my zucchini cookies to be CHEWY. Not cakey.

I achieved some good chew here (thanks to the yolk only, some brown sugar and lots of oats) and cannot even express how delicious these babies were.

So melty and chocolatey too. They tasted like chocolate chip zucchini bread but in a chewy cookie!

Those five mouths would have really been a help .

What is it about zucchini in baked goods?

Everyone goes nuts for it, even I’m kind of crazy about it at the moment, and YES it lends a lovely texture to the bread or cake, but it’s really the spices that makes you THINK of zucchini bread.

If zucchini bread was a perfume, you would smell like spice cake.

I definitely don’t mind smelling like spice cake.

As we near the end up summer and you have thirty pounds of zucchini to use up from your garden, add these to the list.

I love the way these cookies take you into fall because of said spice.

They are somewhat hearty and just warm. And full of health! SO much green, you know.
