Recipe Box, White Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

Shhhhhh…don’t tell anybody these cookies are full of zucchini, because they will never guess


“Hey Gigi, why do the cookies have green speckles?” asked Super Boy

“Oh, that’s the secret super hero ingredient, green energy sugar!”

“Hey DAD!! Gigi made special cookies with green energy, can I have one? Pleeeeeeeezzzzze….”


These cookies are Super Hero easy to make too!


Mix grated zucchini with egg, butter, sugar and vanilla


Stir in flour, baking powder and salt


mix it up


Add white chocolate chips


Drop by spoonfuls onto a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet


This dough is runny and cookies will spread out


The result is a thin, moist cookie with just enough crispy around the edges to make it the perfect bite


These cookies are unbelievable!

    I’m with Mary, I prefer my zukes with chocolate… As a matter of fact I have a fat one my son brought me, maybe I should just dip it:@)

    I’m cracking up because I wrote a newspaper article about how my Mother hides zucchini in her cookies! I think I need to share your recipe with her. Southerners always over plant their gardens, but we always find creative ways to dispose of them!
    Here’s some super energy to you!

  8. What a fun new idea for zucchini! I’m going to bookmark this for later; I’d love to share it on my ‘Link Love’ feature that shares ideas for green + simple living. Great recipe, Jenna!
