Chocolate & Veggies?! Say What?!

Chocolate & Veggies...Seems crazy, right?! Well, we are all Mad here... so it's ok :0) One of my go to recipes that fills that chocolate & nut craving that doesn't leave me feeling guilty or empty is my Chocolate Zucchini Walnut Cookies. They are filled with so much healthy that I let the kids eat them for breakfast!

Chocolate Zucchini Walnut Cookies

1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Egg
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
2 Cups Rolled Oats
2 Cups Grated Zucchini
1 Cup Walnuts

In Mixer beat Butter & both Sugars until fluffy. Then add the Egg fallowed by the Cocoa Powder. Next ad the Flour, Salt, & Oats. Finish up with the Zucchini & Walnuts.

Spoon out onto baking sheets by the Tablespoon full. Giving each cookie a bit of a smush to flatten it out (but not to much).

Bake at 350 Degrees F for 15-18 minutes.

Enjoy my madness! If you want to take it to the next level take 2 cookies and a scoop of Coolwhip. Cover in plastic wrap and freeze it! Makes for a great ice cream sammich :0)
