Zucchini & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

I'm always trying to make my kids eat more veggies, since they love cookies so much, I decided to make a cookie that would incorporate some veggie too. The results were great, they loved and swallowed everything. Take a look:

1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the baking powder, cinnamon, salt and flour, set it aside. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a hand mixer. Add and beat the egg, vanilla extract and zucchini (make sure to squeeze all the water from it before adding to the mix). Add flour one cup at a time to the batter until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop the dough by the tablespoons onto cookie sheet, leave a few inches between each cookie. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool.
