Zucchini lime cookies and zucchini rice are such dishes where one would not even guess it’s presence. So are today’s zucchini oats choco chip cranberry cookies.

Zucchini has high water content and it worked well in this recipe even with 4 tbsps of butter. Cookies were soft and moist though I liked the batch of cookies with 6 tbsp of butter even moore!! and we all know more butter is yummy, isn’t it? Six tablespoons of butter for 30 cookies is not bad at all in my opinion.

Ingredients

  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ - ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 4 - 6 tbsp Unsalted Butter at room temperature, check notes
  • cup Granulated Sugar
  • cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg at room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded Zucchini
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Quick 1 minute Oats, I was out of rolled oats and used quick oats. check notes
  • 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ¾ cup Dry Cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil or parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder.
  4. In a large bowl beat together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
  5. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix.
  6. Add zucchini and mix well.
  7. Gradually add flour mixture until just combined.

  8. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and cranberries.
  9. Drop a tablespoon of cookie dough on a lined cookie sheet. Depending on the size of the cookie sheet, bake in two batches. While the first batching is baking, arrange second batch of cookies and keep aside until the first batch is done.

  10. Bake cookies in a preheated oven for 16 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown at the edges.

  11. Remove from the oven and at this point cookies will be very soft. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for five minutes and cookies will continue to bake while cooling.

  12. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

  13. Store in an airtight container and cookies stay fresh for at least a week.

Recipe Notes
  • Butter - I baked the cookies with 4 tbsp and 6 tbsps butter. Both tasted good and if one is health conscious, use 4 tbsp, else use 6 tbsp butter.
  • Oats - Use old fashioned rolled oats and if using only rolled oats, use 1¾ cup and 2 cups for extra crunch. Do not use only quick oats.  I was out of rolled oats and used 1 cup each of rolled and quick oats this time.  I liked it but would not recommend using only quick oats.

  1. I haven’t tried zucchini in bakes yet but have come across so many recipes, especially in breads. And 6 tablespoons of butter for so many cookies is not a lot at all. the cookies look delicious.

  2. Zucchini is such a versatile ingredient and love it in bakes. I have baked breads but haven’t tried in cookies. These cookies look gorgeous and must taste absolutely yum. I would try the 6tbs version as I don’t really skimp on adding fat.

  3. Loved all your zucchini recipes. I am sure my little one will love these cookies. I think it is easy to replace 1 egg in this recipe.

  4. I have baked loafs and scones using zucchini and know how well they blend in baked dishes. The cooks look very inviting with those red and green bits peeking in.

  5. I bake Zucchini bread often for kids, never tried cookies with it. Will try this soon.. cookies look so good.. these must be having chewy texture na??
