It’s that time of the year when the sun is shining bright up in the sky, nature is blooming happily and all of us trying to change our diet for seasonal produce (summer fruits and vegetables) and so to start with I chose Zucchini. They are light, with lots of water content, full of nutrition and perfect summer vegetable.
I know you all must be thinking that baking a dessert with zucchini is not new but as per the theme of my blog these Flourless Chocolate Zucchini Cookies are surely unique because these delectable, oeey gooey cookies are made purely with zucchini and chocolate and no flour or gains at all. Isn’t that unique?
You must be wondering how to bake Zucchini cookies without any flour. Well before baking these cookies even I wondered but took up the challenge on myself. I can now happily say that Flourless Chocolate Zucchini Cookies are a success in my household and my 3 year old approved it. She couldn’t even figure the zucchini at all and I am a happy mommy making a third batch of these cookies on my daughter’s demand.
I was lucky enough not to find any seeds in the zucchini but if you do please clean the zucchini to remove the seeds and grate it. Squeeze it as much as possible to drain the water. Once the zucchini vegetable is taken care off its very simple to bakes these cookies. I combined the grated zucchini, dates for sweetening, unsweetened cocoa powder for chocolatey flavor, egg, instant coffee to uplift chocolate flavor, flax oil to moist it (olive oil can also be used), vanilla extract for flavoring along with baking powder and salt and whipped up in the food processor.
Easy, isn’t it? I love recipes which call for just putting all the ingredients in the food processor to process and bake. Wow super simple!! 🙂
Just before shaping the batter into cookies I tossed chocolate chips into the batter and baked them. The smell in my kitchen aroused my appetite for dessert and fresh baked cookies are my top priority desserts. These cookies are soft and I loved using the spoon while eating these delicious and healthy cookies because I ate them immediately after taking them out from the oven.
I put the cookies in the refrigerator for some time to stiffen and when offered to Yashvi as an after school snack she finished almost the whole batch. 🙂
