Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Zucchini Cookies made with whole wheat flour, oats, chocolate chips, pecans, and shredded zucchini.
Did you know you can toss zucchini oatmeal cookies, throw in some chocolate chips, and have yourself one beautiful cookie that is full of veggies and whole grains?! Well, you can! It still has its share of sugar and butter but I like to think that the whole grain oats, whole wheat flour, and zucchini help add some nutrition to the ever popular chocolate chip cookie. I’m not going to pass these off as a breakfast or healthy cookie, but I sure don’t feel bad when my kids are eating dessert with vegetables hanging out in them.
I LOVE this recipe because it’s all the things you love about zucchini bread, mixed with everything you love about oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. You’ve got that lightness and moistness from the zucchini and the spices from classic zucchini bread and then you have that great texture from the oatmeal and the chocolate, because, well, chocolate. Chocolate chip zucchini cookies are a fun twist on a classic recipe, and one that I know you’ll be making over and over all zucchini season long!
