Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle A Year of Food Life)
This is one of the reasons why I grow zucchini. I shred it with my cheese grater and freeze them in 1 cup amounts.
I usually make a double batch because our boys love them so much. And so do I!
When I double the recipe it seems like there are too many chocolate chips. Is that really possible?
(Makes about two dozen)
1 egg, beaten
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
Combine in large bowl.
1 cup white flour (I add 1/2 c more flour)
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
Combine in a separate, small bowl and blend into liquid mixture
1 cup finely shredded zucchini
12 oz chocolate chips
Stir these into other ingredients, mix well. Drop by spoonful onto greased baking sheet, and flatten with the back of a spoon. Bake at 350°, 10 to 15 minutes.
