If you planted zucchini in your garden, then you are probably like me and have more zucchini than you know what to do with. Or maybe your neighbor has an abundance and is sharing with you. So here's a sweet way to use it up and sneak some veggies into your kids too.
Low(er) Fat Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1/4 c applesauce
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
2 c flour (whole wheat works too)
1 c oatmeal (non-instant)
1 c grated zucchini
1 c chocolate chips (I think Guittard are the best)
