  • In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in the egg and vanilla, mix well, then stir in the shredded zucchini. Sift together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon, stir into the zucchini mixture. Finally, stir in the oats, granola and chocolate chips.

  • Drop dough from a teaspoon onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Leave at least 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. The cookies will stay soft and moist because of the zucchini.

These cookies were great! I made a few alterations, but they are still delicious: I used 2 c. of oatmeal instead of one c. oatmeal and one c. granola, and I added 2 to 2 and 1/4 c. of zucchini. I also used organic semi-sweet chocolate, so the chocolate isn't as sweet. I'd recommend cooking the full 12 minutes, otherwise the cookies tend to be a bit crumbly. These are also on the less-sweet side, which is a nice change, and have more of a cake-like texture. Very delicious! Read More

I changed this up a little: 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 cups grated zucchini, 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 cup quick cooking oats, 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips. My Husband and kids loved them! Next time I'll double it, since 1 batch only gave me 27 cookies. Read More

Very cake like but really awesome. I used Sugar in the raw and half apple sauce half butter and since some reviews said it wasn't sweet enough i added a teaspoon of honey and a packet of stevia and i halved the chocolate chips and that was still a good amount i also used whole wheat flour and wheat bran and flax seeds!! they were awsome!

Good cookie with a cake-like texture, recipe called for too many chocolate chips - I think 1.5 cups would be about right. Read More

I LOVED these cookies. Took them to work and everybody there loved them too. The zucchini added just enough green without overpowering the cookie. I will defintely make these cookies again. Read More

I love these cookies. I used 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup peanut butter chips, and they reminded me of no-bake cookies with that change (in the way they taste). I also use all oats and no granola, as one other reviewer mentioned. I also add a little wheat germ, and nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon. Be prepared to share, because they are tasty, and because this recipe makes a lot! Read More

I tried these cookies for the first time to serve at a party. I took the earlier suggestion and reduced the number of chocolate chips. They came out terrific! Everyone enjoyed them *very* much!!! There were barely any leftovers---and I made a double batch! Thank you, Holly and thank you, AllRecipes. Read More

These cookies were great!! I made a double batch and used less chocolate chips. My daughter took them to ballet to share with her friends on her birthday (St. Patrick's Day) and everyone loved them!! These cookies are NOT green (I think that's a good thing). Read More

I made these from St. Paddy's day last year and the kids LOVED them!! I put in green food coloring so that they would be really green! Great recipe will make again this year! Read More
