Zucchini-oat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Written by COA Nutrition Team On November 23, 2018

These soft cookies are light and cakey, rather than dense and chewy. Still, melting chocolate chips add their own richness, while oats add texture and nutty flavor. Zucchini — though totally undetectable to either the eye or taste buds — no kid is going to know your little “secret”!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (1 medium)
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) Dark Chocolate Morsels

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. Combine flour, cinnamon and baking soda in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar in large mixer bowl until well combined.
  3. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
  4. Add zucchini; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded teaspoon 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Take a minute to mentally walk through what you’re cooking

Before you start cooking, taking just one minute to think through what you’re about to do makes all the difference in the world. If you’re making multiple dishes, you can pick out what takes the longest to cook and the exact order to prep and cook things, seeing where there are opportunities to prep things while something else is cooking. It’s a lot more efficient to have a mental game plan so you don’t hit any bumps, like forgetting to get water boiling.
