Moist Lowfat Zucchini Cookies


I have lots of zucchini recipes here at my blog. 


to name a few! 

But I didn't have a recipe for cookies.  Recently, I had to say "Sorry" to a friend who asked me for a zucchini cookie recipe, so of course, I was determined to add one.

SO glad I tried this lovely recipe from Mommy on Demand after she shared it with us at a recent Weekend Potluck linky party. 

They're a nice, thick and moist cookie, and you'd never know it had veggies in it....though I do suggest you grate the zucchini FINE.  My grandson was here and was excited about fresh baked cookies, until he saw the 'green stuff' in it, then didn't even want to try one.  =( 

We kept ours in the refrigerator just to keep them fresh. 

If you don't mind the calories..these would be awesome with cream cheese frosting...
