Please don’t turn the page because of the ingredients in this recipe. I discovered a way of hiding zucchini in a cookie, and nobody will know it’s there! We want our children snacking on wholesome foods, and they want the good stuff. Guess what — this is the good stuff!! It’s a soft, moist (due to the minced zucchini) cookie with just a hint of spice to it. Tastes even better straight from the freezer.


Main ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) trans-fat free margarine (use soy-free, if needed)

  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 and 3/4 cups Shibolim White Whole Wheat Flour or other whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon Gefen Cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • pinch of nutmeg

  • pinch of ground cloves

  • 1 cup minced zucchini (approx. 1 and 1/2 medium zucchinis)

  • 1/2 cup ground blanched almonds

  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or Glicks Chocolate Chips


Prepare the Cookies


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).


Gradually add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and spices to the creamed mixture. Mix well. Stir in zucchini, almonds, and chocolate chips.


Drop by tablespoonful, or use a small scoop, onto baking sheets lined with Gefen Parchment Paper. Bake for 14 minutes or until lightly browned.


In a mixing bowl, cream the margarine, oil, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, and beat well until incorporated.


Mince zucchini in the food processor using the knife attachment. Brush down the bowl twice so everything is finely minced. You can use 2 zucchini, and freeze the leftovers (marked, of course!) for later use in soup, hamburgers, etc.


The cookies will still be soft, but will harden somewhat when cooling. Store in the freezer.
