Zucchini almond chocolate chip cookies

Zucchini almond chocolate chip cookies

1 cup sugar

1 cup grated zucchini (I used the second smallest size on my "cheese" grater)

1/2 cup sunflower oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2 cups all purpose flour

1/8 cup sliced almonds

1/3 cup chocolate chips

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I let the zucchini sit for a few minutes after I grated it and drained the excess liquid, and gently squeezed it a little bit. You don't want it dry, but you don't want gobs of zucchini juice going in it either. minutes.  Cool on parchment or wire rack. Makes about 3.5 dozen cookies.  Mix the wet and the dry ingredients. Roll about a hefty tbsp of the dough into a ball. Plop onto a pre-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 . Have some ice cold almond milk on hand to wash them down :)
