    These cookies have lots of hidden goodness and taste great too. These biscuits will stay soft and moist because of the zucchini. Make it for St. Patrick's Day, as the green colour fits the theme.

    These cookies were great! I made a few alterations, but they are still delicious: I used 2 c. of oatmeal instead of one c. oatmeal and one c. granola, and I added 2 to 2 and 1/4 c. of zucchini. I also used organic semi-sweet chocolate, so the chocolate isn't as sweet. I'd recommend cooking the full 12 minutes, otherwise the cookies tend to be a bit crumbly. These are also on the less-sweet side, which is a nice change, and have more of a cake-like texture. Very delicious!  -  16 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very cake like but really awesome. I used Sugar in the raw and half apple sauce half butter and since some reviews said it wasn't sweet enough i added a teaspoon of honey and a packet of stevia and i halved the chocolate chips and that was still a good amount i also used whole wheat flour and wheat bran and flax seeds!! they were awsome!  -  21 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I changed this up a little: 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 cups grated zucchini, 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 cup quick cooking oats, 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips. My Husband and kids loved them! Next time I'll double it, since 1 batch only gave me 27 cookies.  -  25 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
