Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

by Laura

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.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups grated zucchini
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the grated zucchini. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.

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! 🙂
