Servings 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease the baking sheet.
  • Whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl or stand mixer, combine butter and sugars, mix until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract. Then stir in the shredded zucchini.
  • Slowly add flour mixture until just combined. Using a wooden spoon stir in oats, and chocolate chunks.
  • Using a small scoop or tablespoon scoop out the dough (about 2 tablespoons each) onto baking sheets, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Remove cookies from pans and let cool on wire racks.
