Hearty oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips, coconut and orange. The zucchini makes them incredibly moist and tender, and healthy enough to have for breakfast…well, almost.
My local grocery store had zucchini on sale the other day, and since it’s my all time favorite vegetable, I figured I’d stock up. I knew I wanted to bake something but wasn’t quite sure what. I came across this recipe and thought it sounded pretty amazing, and quite healthy, so I figured I’d give it a try.
WOW. These cookies are amazing. The coconut gives them a beautifully nutty flavor and the hint of orange gives a nice brightness. The zucchini has a lot of liquid but that keeps the cookies incredibly moist.
