Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

Not such a great picture I know, but my son just happened to take it, so I thought I would include it LOL. I would have to say these were just OK. I mean anything is pretty decent with a bunch of chocolate chips in it! The batter seemed... cakey would be the best way to describe it, and the end product had that slightly spongy texture as well. Think I might have used too much xanthan gum. Also, I used the small shred size for the zucchini, which produced alot of liquid. I tried to not get rid of some of it, but didn't really squeeze it out or drain it like I think I should have.

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies


* 1 egg, beaten
* 1/2 cup Earth Balance, softened
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1/3 cup honey
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup rice flour
* 1/4 cup flax meal
* 1/2 cup corn starch
* 1/4 cup tapioca starch
* 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
* 1 cup finely shredded zucchini
* 12 ounces chocolate chips


Combine egg through vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Combine rice flour through nutmeg in a medium bowl and add to liquid mixture.
Stir zucchini and chocolate chips into other ingredients, mix well. Drop by spoonful onto greased baking sheet, and flatten with the back of a spoon. Bake at 350°, 10 to 15 minutes.
