Tips for Baking with Zucchini

  • Shred zucchini just before adding it into the cookie dough (or any kind of batter when cooking and baking with zucchini for that matter).
  • Consider the zucchini, whether it is moist or more on the dry side and adjust the flour proportionas accordingly.
  • As for achieving thick and fluffy cookies, leave the prepared dough in the fridge to chill for at least a half hour to one hour or longer if possible.

We’ve added a scoopful of semi-sweet chocolate chips for a bit of extra sweetness but you can also leave without or add a scoopful of raisins instead.

The dough freezes very well so if you want to make the dough in advance, place it in the freezer and remove to thaw before baking.
