Zucchini Cookies

These Zucchini Cookies were simply amazing!!!   The best part they are low-fat…can I get a YIPPEE!!   Which is exactly what I need right now.   As of right now my garden has an abundance of Zucchini.   I have never had a zucchini plant produce so much.  I simply can’t keep up with it all so I have been giving some away, freezing and making lots of recipes involving zucchini.   Its awesome, I love watching my garden produce!!

So what exactly is a girl suppose to do with so much zucchini…..make Zucchini Cookies of course!!


I loved how these cookies are so thick, almost cake like and they were super moist.

Even though I know I shouldn’t be eating these right now, I couldn’t resist making them!   I still ended up enjoy a few of these but the rest  went to my family and co-workers.  They were all delighted!

This recipe will be made over and over again!


If you are not caring about the whole low-fat, I even think adding some cream cheese frosting on top of these would make them that much better.    But either way they are so good and you should give them a try!!
