Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Diane Richardson, from Kirkwood, Missouri, found an ingenious way to get her picky six-year-old, Robbie, to eat his zucchini--by turning it into a treat. She makes double batches and even lets her kids eat them for breakfast.

What you'll need

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup corn oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini

How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 350° F. Beat together the egg, oil and both sugars until well blended.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Add the oatmeal and zucchini and mix well.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, placing them about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 2 dozen.
