Want to know how I know if a recipe is good or not?

When I make a recipe, I usually photograph it as soon as possible. My dinner recipes are usually photographed a couple of minutes before we are about to sit down for dinner.

However, dessert recipes that are baked usually don’t photograph that well when they are fresh out of the oven. They need a little time to cool down and set up.

Well, on this particular day, these cookies weren’t ready to photograph before the sun went down, so I put them in a container and asked my family to please not eat them until I had photographed them.

The next morning, I came downstairs to find that there were only 7 cookies left. 7 COOKIES.

No one would fess up to the crime and there is no use crying over spilled milk, so I decided to make due with what I had left and try and get a good picture.

Well, as I was figuring out how to photograph them, I noticed that two cookies had BITES missing from them.


Only one person in our family has a mouth that small and she has recently learned how to climb up on our counter.

It’s a good thing that she’s cute. That’s all I have to say.

So, the picture that you see of these Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies consists of 7 cookies- the only 7 that remained. The two cookies in the back have little bites missing out of them. Oh, the secrets of food photography.

As soon as I was done photographing them, one of my older kids yelled, “Mom’s done photographing the cookies!” and just like that, all 7 of them were gone.

So, that’s how you know these cookies are amazing. You should make them. Immediately.

do i need to remove any excess zucchini juice?

We didn’t remove any zucchini juice, or sop up any of the extra liquid off them. We just threw it all together and it turned the cookies moist, but they were absolutely perfect. You will love these cookies.

  1. Thanks for the great recipe! I am not good at baking and always end up with flat cookies but these turned out beautifully! Nice and tall the way I like them. I read the freezer comments - I am going to try freezing the dough so I can have a house smelling like warm chocolate next time we want these again, I'll let you know if that works out!

    Hi. I made these yesterday for my son's Carnavale at school today. They are delicious. But I have a question; my dough was really dry and I couldn't seem to "hide" the zucchini's. I peeled mine because I didn't buy organic, and you could see the white in every cookie. I almost added milk to help the dough become a bit more moist, but I didn't want to ruin your recipe. What do you think I did wrong? I hand grated on a medium grate. My son wouldn't eat them because he didn't like the way they looked, though honestly they were amazing cookies. Maybe adult cookies? ;) Thank you.

    Absolutely loved these! Don't bother squeezing the juice out of the zucchini - the wet zucchini softens the dry dough to just the right consistency. The chocolate chips are an absolute MUST! If you want to make these and don't have chocolate chips, do yourself a favor and buy/borrow some. They turn a good cookie into a decadent one. Great recipe, will make again...and again...and again.
