I am always on the look out for the healthy cookie recipes. Living in sunny Florida where it is bikini season year round and being a huge cookie enthusiast is a very hard thing to combine. Delicious flourless oatmeal cookies with shredded zucchini, chocolate chips and naturally sweetened with banana, these cookies are a rare find.
They are gluten free, vegan and borderline delicious. With only 5 wholesome ingredients like rolled oats, ripe banana, zucchini, chocolate chips and peanut butter, the cookies are a breeze to make.
I love using zucchini in baking. Zucchini bread is my favorite. And it is a tasty way to hide the vegetables when you trying to feed your 6 year old. Zucchini aids in making moist and chewy cookies.
They are a perfect pairing for rustic rolled oats. Squeeze out all the moisture from the zucchini before adding to the cookie batter. This ensures the cookies will be moist and chewy, without spreading and sinking once being baked.
Mashed overripe banana brings in un unbeatable sweetness to the treats. It can be substituted for unsweetened applesauce if you do not like the banana flavor. You can also make the cookies nut free by swiping the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter or tahini. To keep the cookies sugar free use sugar free chocolate chips.
