Sharing is caring!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies are made with sprouted oats, shredded zucchini, and dark chocolate. They’re a great way to use up zucchini and add some veggies to dessert, while still being buttery and delicious! I also replaced some of the white flour with whole wheat and used coconut sugar instead of regular to avoid as many refined ingredients as possible.

How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies are very easy to make and come together in under 30 minutes! Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and lining two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk both flours, cinnamon, and baking soda. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and coconut sugar on high speed. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the cream cheese and cinnamon extract. Cinnamon extract is one of my favourite baking ingredients and I actually use it more than vanilla! It’s hard to find in stores, so I make my own by putting cinnamon sticks in a dark bottle with vodka. After a few weeks, I have a fragrant bottle of cinnamon extract. If you can’t find any and don’t want to make your own, use pure vanilla extract instead which you can find at The Spice House!

Continue mixing on high speed. When the cream cheese and extract are mixed in, scraped down the sides of the bowl again and turn the mixer to low. Gradually add the dry ingredients, continuing to scrape down the sides as needed. Then, with the mixer still on low, add the oats. When they are mixed in, add the zucchini, and finally the chocolate chips.

Use a two tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto the cookie sheets and press them down. Leave a couple inches between the cookies. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown on the bottoms. Remove from oven and let the cookies rest for five to ten minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
