Yes, I'm Still Using Up My Zucchini!
It was pointed out this week that I hadn't used chocolate chips in any of my recipes lately - gosh, what's happening to me - lol! So here we go - a recipe with chocolate chips;) I found this cookie recipe when I was searching for zucchini recipes. And, yes, I'm still using up zucchini - I love recipes using this vegetable! Usually you find this more in loaves and cakes but when I found a cookie recipe (my 1st love), I had to try it. This recipe from wholeandheavenlyoven.com is a healthier, very dense and filling cookie. I find I like this as a mid-morning snack - it satisfies, is very filling and has lots of good stuff in it!

3/4 c. coconut sugar (can sub in brown sugar)

1 c. shredded zucchini
3/4 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. chocolate chips (I used semi sweet but you could use dark as well)
Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet, giving them a little press with your hand to flatten them slightly.
Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes (check after 10, but may need longer - my oven seems to bake fast).
