Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies (#15)

Now these are some good cookies!  I’m not your typical dietitian baker who tries to make everything super healthy by using low fat/low sugar/tasteless ingredients.  I like the real stuff!  But…sneaking in a vegetable or fruit here and there does make things a bit more interesting.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

5 T unsalted butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 cup shredded zucchini (squeeze out some of the excess water with paper towels)

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 cup chocolate chips

1/3 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder and whisk to combine.  Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, vanilla and sugars.  Add in egg and shredded zucchini, mix just until combined.  Add flour mixture to wet mixture in thirds, mix until combined.  Add in the walnuts and chocolate chips and mix well.

Sprinkle powdered sugar onto small plate.  Roll rolls of cookie dough pin the sugar.  Space out cookies evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Baking for 13-15 minutes.  Allow to cool for a few minutes on sheet, transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
