Zucchini, Oat and Dark Chocolate Chips Cookies

The South Arm Community Kitchen rounded up the meal with some healthy cookies.


We made this Zucchini, Oat Cookies in two batches, one with chocolate chips and another with raisins. This is a healthy breakfast cookie and great for snack too.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (we used half all-purpose and half whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (1 medium)
  • 1 1/3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (we used walnut)
  • 1 2/3 cups (10oz pkg) chocolate chips or raisins

We used an ice-cream scoop to do the job.
