Chocolate Oatmeal Zucchini Cookies combine a chocolate cookie with an oatmeal one with some fresh zucchini added in! The oats and zucchini give these cookies the best texture, and they’re not overly sweet. They make a great snack cookie after school or tuck them in lunch boxes for a special treat.
During the summer, I am looking for all the ways to use up the zucchini we grow in our garden. At the beginning of the season, we’re all excited to grow them, but by the end, I’m ready to put an end to our zucchini harvest. They grow like weeds!
So, yes, I am all about the zucchini recipes. Especially zucchini dessert recipes because why sauté them when you can grate them up and add them to all the sweet treats? It’s my favorite way to use them, and these chocolate zucchini cookies are a new favorite.
I love zucchini bread and muffins, but zucchini cookies recipes are a good option to switch things up.
Why You’ll Love These Cookies
These are full of chocolate flavor and the base cookie isn’t too sweet, which is why I added a hefty dose of chocolate chips!
They have a great texture, too. The zucchini adds a lot of moisture and the oatmeal gives them a little bit of a chew.
These zucchini chocolate oatmeal cookies are great plain, but you can also add some mix-ins if you want to switch them up. They’re also freezer-friendly!
