This recipe is my adaptation of a recipe from one of my favorite books, Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. I read the book this winter, and Barbara’s mention of how productive zucchini is in the garden was my sole reason for planting some this spring. I’m a sucker for a sure thing when it comes to vegetables. Especially since this is my first year gardening. I couldn’t turn down a plant that promised prolific harvest with little effort. 🙂
So far my one zucchini plant hasn’t disappointed. We’ve harvested 5 zucchinis so far, and this last one was huge!
This picture is the shredded zucchini that was left after making the cookies. And I only shredded half of it! I will say that for this recipe the finer the shreds, the better. I couldn’t find the other disc for the food processor though, so mine are pretty thick.
I really like these cookies. They are almost more like cake in consistency. See?
I think because of the consistency, you these would be delicious even without the chocolate chips. Hopefully when my pumpkins are ripe I can try replacing zucchini with pumpkin. That would be delicious too!
makes about 24 cookies
