Zookies! (Part 1)

So Cami sent me an email with a recipe for zucchini cookies! You can find that recipe here. Naturally I had to try it! The recipe that Cami sent looked good, but I found it a little boring with just butterscotch chips, so I searched for a similar recipe using oatmeal, and chocolate chips in addition to the butterscotch chips. Here's the new recipe (I forgot where I found it):

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter until soft, add sugar, and beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beat well.
  3. In a medium bowl stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. With mixer on low speed, gradually add four mixture to butter mixture, beat until well mixed. With a wooden spoon, stir in oats, zucchini, walnuts or pecans, chocolate and butterscotch pieces.
  4. Drop by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool sheets and then cookies on a cooling rack.
I forgot to take a picture, but I brought the cookies to work and everyone loved them, so if you have zucchini, give it a shot!
