These beauties are incredible! No one (even your picky kids OR spouse) will taste the vegetables in these! They bake up soft and cake-y and have the most wonderful flavor.
If you just grate the zucchini, it will be more noticeable in the cookie. I use my food processor and grind it up a little more after grating so it's less visible. Either way, you won't notice a texture difference in the cookie.
Chocolate Zucchini Cookies
1 Cup Grated Zucchini
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1 Tsp Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Cocoa
12 Oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts (Optional - I don't use them)
Combine zucchini, brown sugar, baking soda, and butter until blended. Add egg and vanilla into zucchini mixture. Add remaining ingredients - folding in chocolate chips and nuts (if desired). Chill dough for 1 hour. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto ungreased pan. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 10 minutes. Don't over-bake cookies, you'll want them soft to the touch, but not gooey in the middle after cooling.
Yields approximately 30 - 2" cookies.
