Spicy Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"In my efforts to use the abundance of zucchini in my garden I concocted this little cookie. I prefer my oatmeal cookies to have a little jazz, so if you are not a fan of ground cloves, they can be omitted. It's a not too sweet cake-like cookie that is perfect with your cup of coffee or tea."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
  2. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves in a bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until creamy. Add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour mixture and oats until just incorporated.
  3. Wring the zucchini in a clean towel to remove any excess moisture. Stir the zucchini and raisins into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the bottom edges turn golden brown.

These cookies turned out awesome- but I made a lot of changes. Before adding the zucchini I let it sit with some salt for 30 mins to get the extra moisture out, but that made my batter was too d...

YUM!! Such a great recipe! But make sure to double it if you want a lot of cookies. The cloves and cinnamon added just the right flavor.

Too cake like for my taste

These were too dense and cakey.

I had a good feeling about these cookies even before I baked them. The spicy cake like texture combined with oats and in my case the addition of a few mini chocolate chips made for a very good ...
