Here’s another zucchini recipe for those that like them. I still have zucchini coming out of my ears. I saw this recipe for Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies from Stephanie at Fun Foods – On a Budget! These turned out yummy.
Now Stephanie didn’t say how much chocolate chips she used in her recipe. I add one cup, and next time I think I’ll a two cups. There just wasn’t enough chocolate chips for my taste. I like a good amount of chips per cookie. I’m glad to have another different way to use us that zucchini. You could even freeze these cookies and save some for later.
This cookie begins like most cookies, cream together margarine with sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Next time I’ll try them with butter. This also uses both brown sugar and white sugar. In another bowl, you whisk all the dry ingredients together. Then you mix the wet and dry mixtures together.
Now comes the zucchini and chocolate chips. You will fold then in. Scoop the dough onto grease cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a cooling rack.

Glad you enjoyed them! Yeah, I originally used 1 cup of chocolate chips, and I also thought that there should be more. So 2 cups it is! 🙂
