Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

I love zucchini! It grew in my garden as a kid and I can't wait to grow with my kids one day. In the meantime I've been purchasing it in mass quantities and enjoying every bit of it.

If you have zucchini growing like weeds in your garden or have been picking it up from the farmers market stand and want a new dish to use it in I've got the perfect recipe for you . . . Chocolate Zucchini Cookies.

I've just altered the cake mix recipe that I love. These are so easy! They passed the taste test by my husband and 4 year old son too.  They are moist, delicious and healthy (for a cookie that is)!

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies
1 box chocolate cake
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable/canola oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1-1.5 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet and bake them at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. That's it. Easy huh?!

  1. I just tried these with dark chocolate cake mix. I always have a ton of zucchini to use, but tonight I was out of flour to make other options. This was a good alternative and the cookies came out great! Nice surprise addition to our kids' lunches.
