Foodie Fridays ~ Yummy (Believe It Or Not) Zucchini Cookies

Got some zucchini in the fridge begging to be consumed but no one will touch it? Have I got a recipe for you and the best part is that you'll be hiding the vegetable in the cookie.

Okay, I think I can actually hear some of you actively clicking away from this recipe post not being able to compute 'yummy' with 'zucchini cookie'. I was pleasantly surprised too, and I don't know whether it's the spices thrown in or the chewy, buttery texture but it just works.

I make a mean zucchini banana bread, which is exactly like regular banana bread with a few visible green bits here and there. This was given a stamp of approval so I thought I'd try it a different way.

This recipe is very easy and you can treat it like an oatmeal chocolate chip recipe only most of your moisture will be from the egg and the zucchini. And if you add in a few chocolate, butterscotch, yogurt or vanilla chips in there, who'll notice?

As always, you can tweak this to your own personal dietary needs using different kinds of flours or sugar options. But it will still turn out great.

Have fun, and let me know if you try it out.
