Feature: Easy Zucchini Cookies – Great Way to Use Zucchini

These Easy Zucchini Cookies are a twist to the classic oatmeal cookie recipe.

The recipe gives you the chance to use the piles of zucchini that are ready to pick all at the same time in midsummer and add some veggies to your cookie dough in the process (so you can actually believe you’re eating a healthy cookie.)

Another plus to this recipe is that it calls for grated zucchini. That means you now have a practical use for those wayward zucchinis that get as big as green baseball bats when you miss picking them.

Even better: these cookies freeze well. Make several batches, use up all your zucchini, and freeze the cookies to use in lunch boxes once school starts.

The cookies are soft, almost like miniature rounds of zucchini bread. It’s a true comfort food cookie!

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 10-13 minutes, divided
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
