Zucchini Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Spring is in the air! I have been loving having the windows open and getting fresh air into the house. Even with the rain we’ve been getting, it’s still so nice! Windows open and cookies baking are what’s really happening at my house! Today I wanted to share these zucchini oat chocolate chip cookies that we love. They are super basic and so good and maybe not the first way people think of getting kids to eat veggies, but why not, right?

If the thought of zucchini in your cookies seems weird, don’t fret! You actually don’t even taste it!

These cookies never last long at my house therefore, one thing I love to do it make up the dough and roll into balls and then freeze them. Then I can just pull out a few at a time for us to enjoy rather than making a bulk amount and pigging out on them. Because frankly, that is the only way I seem to eat cookies.
