Zucchini Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These Zucchini Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are made without butter or refined sugar for a healthy treat! Easy to make in one bowl too for easy clean up!

Yup, believe it or not, I am sharing yet another zucchini recipe with you guys! How could I not when they are soo good?? Today, I am sharing a healthy cookie recipe with you that we absolutely love and I know you will too!

If you are a fan of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, than this recipe is for you! I have made these cookies without any refined sugar and using coconut oil so that you can feel good about eating them! Oh, and of course, they have lots of zucchini too!

These soft, cakey cookies taste great and satisfy that sweet craving without any of the guilt you’d have with traditional cookies. That’s pretty much all the justification I need to have more than one! Ha!

Not only do they taste good and are healthy, but they are so easy to make too! They can also be made gluten free (though you are welcome to use regular flour too if you are not on a restricted diet).

How to make Zucchini Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

To make these cookies, you will need:

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • a cup oats
  • 1 1/4 cups oat, whole wheat or all purpose flour (use oat flour for a gluten free cookie)
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

To start, preheat the oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place shredded zucchini in a paper towel or cheese cloth and squeeze out excess moisture.

Place zucchini and all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine.

Scoop cookie dough onto the baking trays. Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon (the cookies will not spread much). Bake for 13 minutes or until they turn a nice golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.

That’s it! This recipe makes 24 cookies which is great because a) they are delicious and b) they freeze well so I like to freeze some and defrost for a treat every now and then!

Hope you enjoy these healthy cookies!
