A Healthier Cookie

January 25, 2018

Hello Lovelies,

So, I’ve been craving chocolate chip cookies lately but I made the decision that if I was going to go ahead and make them it had to be a healthier version, because who am I kidding, I can’t just eat one.

These zucchini oat chocolate chip cookies were pretty healthy to begin with. I modified the recipe to make them even healthier, adding whole wheat flour, flax, chia and reducing sugar, mainly so that I could eat two or maybe three and feel slightly less guilty haha whatever works, am I right??!


1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup milled flaxseed

1 tbs chia seeds

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup coconut sugar (can use light brown sugar instead)

1 large egg

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (from about 1 – 2 medium)

1 cup quick oats

3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips or carob chips



  • Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, flax and chia.
  • In a separate bowl combine the butter, the sugars and vanilla until well mixed.
  • Add the egg to the sugar mixture and stir to combine. Add the zucchini and oats.
  • Combine the wet with the dry and slowly mix in the nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Use a tablespoon to portion onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-14 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet and then transfer to a cooking rack. These freeze really well. Enjoy!
