How do you make chocolate zucchini cookies?

I told you these are easy and quick to make and I do not lie. This vegan cookies recipe is so great for a quick snack and to cure that sweet tooth. Here’s how you make them: 

  1. To a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar using a hang mixer or whisk.  Once combined, add the vanilla and egg replacement.  Mix or whisk till well combined
  2. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir till combined
  3. Add half of the dry mixture to the wet mixture and fold/stir together using a spatula
  4. Add in the remainder of the dry mixture and fold/ stir together. Once combined, add in the chocolate chips and zucchini.  Mix till combined
  5. Preheat oven to 350F and live two baking sheets with parchment
  6. Using a 1 tbsp. cookie scoop, begin scooping out the cookie dough and placing them on the baking sheet leaving 2 inches between each cookie
  7. Bake for 11 minutes
  8. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before cooling completely on a baking rack
  9. Enjoy!

What is the best plant butter?

Finding a great plant butter that’s versatile (you can melt, spread, bake with, etc.) can be hard. I like to use Califia Farms Plant Butter. What’s great about this plant butter is that it’s made from REAL food like cashews, tiger nuts (which are super high in fiber), nutritional yeast, avocado oil or olive oil, BUT you get that creamy butter-like taste that melts, spreads, and cooks or bakes well. These products stay clear from palm and canola oils and provide that yummy taste you’ll love with the use of whole foods, versus just fat like regular non-vegan butter.

Easy, simple, healthy and adaptable!
I needed to adapt my recipe to yours Maria – only due to availability ❤️
I didn’t have brown sugar so I used 1/3 coconut sugar, 1/3 honey and 1/3 maple syrup. I also used an egg instead of flax. I opted for 1 cup of flour instead of and extra 1/2 – only because the batter seemed thick enough. But in the extra is necessary. Yum! Exactly what I felt like this morning. The answer to my zucchini chocolate obsession cravings xx

Thank you so much for the love, Stacey!
