Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil/butter
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini This way the kids don't get chunks
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar/ white cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup walnut bits almond bits and cashew bits
  • 1/2 cup cranberries and raisins
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients- whole wheat flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder.
  3. In your mixing bowl, whip the egg till frothy and add to this the sugar and mix well.
  4. To this mixture add the yogurt and coconut oil/butter and mix again.
  5. Now add the zucchini and blend in well.
  6. To this mixture, slowly add the dry mixture, the nuts, cranberries, raisins and chocolate chips. Mix well.
  7. In a prepared cookie tray lined with parchment paper, scoop out a spoonful each of cookie batter, ensuring you leave at least 1 inch space between each as these spread out.
  8. Place into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or till golden brown. The cookies that come out at this stage will be moist and fudgey like. If you'd prefer your cookies to be crisper, place them in the oven for 20 minutes or so. (Just make sure they don't darken in color. The kids won't enjoy a burnt cookie ;> )
  9. Enjoy!
