You have got to try these!!

While being laid up for the past few weeks, I have done something I have never done in the the web!  Yes, I mean hour after hour.  Well the other night on Pintrest, I ran across a wonderful recipe for cookies.  I don't know who pinned it or who wrote this recipe, but I do not take credit for any of it!  All I know is that I don't feel near as guilty eating these, as I do others.


 First thing I did this morning is shred one small zucchini onto a paper towel.  This allowed some of the moisture to wick away while prepping the other part of the cookies.

1 1/2c flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt (unless you use margarine, then omit the additional salt)
---set aside---the flour mixture is in the green bowl to the left.

1/2c unsalted butter or margarine, softened
1/2c sugar (optional)
1/3c brown sugar

1 1/2tsp vanilla
1 egg
*slowly add in the flour mixture until well blended
** on low, carefully add in the shredded zucchini (1 1/2c)

1c oatmeal (Quick Oats)
3/4c pecans, or whatever your family prefers.
1 2/3c chocolate chips, or just dump in a whole bag!

 I dry roasted my pecans for a little bit more flavor!

 Mix all of the final 3 ingredients until evenly incorporated.

Drop by rounded spoonsful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 350f for 11-14 min.
Cool for 2 min, then transfer to a cooling rack.  This recipe makes 3 doz small cookies.  They stay moist in an air tight container.  I have not tried freezing them, but I'm sure they would hold up well.

This really is a versatile recipe.  I know that the kids will like it, and there are veggies inside!

I love your suggestion to dump in a whole bag of chocolate chips!! They sound and look lovely. I hope that you are not laid up for too much longer - not because I don't like seeing these cookies, but because I want you to be better!! xx

I'm with Amy, a whole bag of chocolate chips works for me! These cookies do sound rather delish, Miss Vicki!
