Chewy, warm and comforting cookies… ahhh. I get a craving for them strait out of the oven every once in a while. Usually when I’m home bound on a rainy evening, which is exactly how it struck me when I put together these beauties. It’s a miracle I was even able to get some pictures from some leftover light there was outside! Now that summer is winding down, I’m using up the last of the zucchini and eggplant, and some shredded green zucchini made it’s way into these delicious cookies. I’m super proud of them, while I love using just almond or peanut butter to make cookies and do it often… good nut butters are expensive! So I wanted to use some “flour” as well. I’m doing a mix of mostly almond meal and a little coconut flour – both are grain and gluten-free, it’s also making for a lower carb option which I’m all about 🙂 These will cure your end of summer sadness… as it did mine. For like, 5 minutes. I guess I’ll go shop online for fall clothes to further ease the pain now… GO MAKE THESE!

I made these tonight and they turned out great. It iwas an easy recipe to follow. I decided to try an almond butter with walnuts, cinnamon and blueberries and it teally made these cookies taste wonderful. The cookies were soft, chewy and tasted wonderful. Nobody would be able to tell there’s zucchini in the cookie unless you tell them. Best vegan, gluten free cookie I’ve ever eaten. Will definitely make these again!!
Awesome, Tina! So happy to hear that. Don’t you love sneaking in veggies?? XO
These look delicious! But could you use regular flour too?
Hi Anne! Thank you 🙂 I can’t eat regular flour, so I haven’t tried it but I’m sure you can! I’m just not positive on the ratio, another thing you can do is sub the zucchini for eggs in a normal cookie recipe you have and adjust the flour as you go along. Hope this helps.
Wow, these look just perfect! I love cookies more than anything and I am always looking for new healthy recipes. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
Happy to spread the love <3
I’ve never had zucchini cookies either — you’re rocking my foodie world tonight, first with the eggplant fries and now these <3 Big love!
HEHE – I aim to please, girl! 🙂
So creative! I’ve tried zucchini cakes and brownies, but this one is totally new for me!
Thanks for this 🙂
Thanks, Evi!! Hope you try it, they were a hit with my friends 🙂
Zucchini COOKIES! What!! So creative! They look so chewy too, perfect for a cool fall morning 🙂
Exactly!! The cinnamon and nutmeg in these are also divine! Do it 🙂
Alison these look delicious! I’ve seen zucchini in cookies before, but usually they’re thick and "breakfasty" and not thin and perfect-looking like these. I love nut butters in my cookies too. It’s my favourite secret ingredient! xo
Thanks, Christine! Aren’t nut butters the best for keeping baked goods moist? Love it!
