Zucchini Choc Chip Cookies
I don't have any zucchini in the garden yet but the grasshopper threat seems to be subsiding so there might still be time to have a harvest this season. I was however the beneficiary of a couple of zeppelin size zucchini that would have been too big and tasteless to serve as is. So far I have made some zucchini choc chip cookies which are delicious. The recipe is easy, and turns out a moist and chocolatey biscuit which kids (big and small) love. They aren't too sweet and have a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.They also use some wholemeal flour so are probably a little healthier. I think they tastetoo good to be healthy though. The other zucchini is destined for chocolate zucchini cake/muffins which I will show next time.
The recipe comes from Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal,Vegetable,Miracle which is a good read if you are interested in finding out about local,seasonal eating.
Let me know if you try the recipe or have tried it or something similar, I'm always after interesting ways to use fruits and vegetables.
Until next time,
