Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies are surprisingly soft and chewy. That’s how I love my cookies. Plus these have one of my favorite veggies.

Super chewy chocolate oatmeal cookies with hidden zucchini.




  1. In a large bowl, cream softened butter and sugar with a spatula.
  2. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl and pour it in the butter sugar mixture. Add in vanilla extract and mix it well with a spatula.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet. Combine well.
  4. Fold in oatmeal, chocolate chips and shredded zucchini. The dough will be wet and sticky. Don’t worry!
  5. Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Line a baking sheet with parchment and drop cookie dough on the baking sheet using an ice cream scoop. Refrigerate for about 30 min.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Don’t overbake these! They will look uncooked when you remove them fom oven, but they will continue cooking when they wait on the baking sheet.
  7. Remove from oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes or until they don’t look wet anymore. Meanwhile top each cookie with additional chocolate chunks.
