Chocolate Zucchini Cookies.

I tried this recipe out last night and it. is. fantastic. 
Its the perfect treat if you’re in the mood for some reasonably healthy, chocolatey goodness.
They taste like gooey brownies…. and you cant even tell there is zucchini in them.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies
Prep Time: 10 m | Cook Time: 14 m | Makes: 24

Ingredients:
1-¼ cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
½ cups Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
½ cups Brown Sugar
½ cups White Cane Sugar
1 whole Egg
1 cup Shredded Zucchini
½ cups Walnuts, Chopped (optional)
1 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
⅓ cups Confectioner’s Sugar (for Rolling The Dough In)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder and whisk or sift to combine. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine the butter, vanilla extract and sugars. Use a stand or hand mixer to mix until creamy. Add the egg and shredded zucchini and mix just until combined. Pour in the flour mixture (I typically do this in thirds) and mix just until combined. Add the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips, mix to integrate into dough.

If desired, sprinkle confectioner’s sugar on a plate so you can roll the balls of cookie dough in the sugar. Roll the dough into balls and roll them in the sugar if desired. Space cookie dough evenly on a parchment-lined or lightly oiled cookie sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
