A couple of weeks ago I began sharing with you some recipes to help you use up the rest of your zucchini that might be overwhelming you. We have finally used all of ours up & I don't think we will be getting anymore this year...so this will probably be the last zucchini recipe I share; BUT it may be my favorite.
Cookies may be my favorite dessert to bake and keep in the house. Whenever I make cookies I know they'll get ate up before they go bad. They are so easy to just grab and go, where cake tends to get tossed because we can't finish it fast enough. So I was really excited when I found a recipe for Zucchini Cookies over at Two Peas and Their Pod.
Zucchini Cookies with Chocolate Chips & Cranberries
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbls unsalted butter, at room temp.
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup shredded zucchini
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cranberries
- Pre-heat the oven to 350.
-In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. Set aside
- In a large mixing bowl combine butter & sugars, mix until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract. Next add the shredded zucchini. Mix until combined.
- Slowly add flour mixture until just combined. Stir in oats, chips & cranberries.
- Drop cookie dough about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet & bake for about 15 minutes or until golden.
These cookies were so delicious & easy to make. Definitely a go to recipe from now on when we have some zucchini to use up :) Enjoy!
***My simple tip: If you're ever out of brown sugar & need it, simply mix some molasses with regular sugar***
