During those summer months you always end up with too much zucchini! Why not whip up a batch of zucchini cookies! These soft cookies with a hint of cinnamon and packed with chocolate chips are one of my favorite ways to use up some of my excess zucchini!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Quick Cooking Oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded Zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a couple baking sheets with non stick parchment paper (or spray them lightly with non stick cooking spray).
  2. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with the white sugar and the brown sugar.
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Beat in the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and the oatmeal.
  5. Add the shredded zucchini.
  6. Add the flour.
  7. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  8. Allow the cookie dough to sit for 10 minutes so any extra moisture gets absorbed.
  9. Scoop cookie dough onto the prepared pans with a cookie scoop or by spoonfuls that are approximately 2 Tbs of dough spacing each a couple inches apart.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven (350 degrees) for 10-12 minutes.
  11. Cool and eat!


  • I do not find that removing extra moisture from the zucchini is necessary for this recipe.  The oatmeal soaks up any extra liquid very well.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container or large ziploc bag.
