Zucchini Cookies

I am always trying to sneak vegetables into cookies and other "treats" since I find it quite challenging to get my kids to eat vegetables. I figured if I made some chocolate zucchini cookies, they might actually eat them. I didn't have a zucchini cookie recipe so I used my usual oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and added chunks of zucchini in place of half the oats and chocolate instead of raisins. I also used 1 egg instead of 2.

There are a lot of zucchini recipes that I would still love to try such as zucchini muffins, zucchini bread and even zucchini cake. The key to getting my kids to actually eat them is to make the zucchini pieces as small as possible!
