This time of year we find ourselves with so many zucchini we don't know what to do with them. We love this healthy cookie recipe that's quick and easy.

Ingredients

1 cup shredded zucchini, drained

2 1/4 cups rolled oats, divided

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 cup mashed ripe banana (~2 small bananas)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F

Shred zucchini and squeeze excess water out with a kitchen cloth or paper towel 

Combine 1 cup rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth

Add shredded zucchini, peanut butter,  mashed  banana, and vanilla extract to the food processor and blend until nearly smooth

Stir in 1 1/4 cup oats and chocolate chips

Spoon into 20-24 cookies on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes

Let cool for 10 minutes 

Tips

If it seems a little liquidy, add a few more oats
