Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

You guys!

Thank you all so much to everyone who came out yesterday afternoon to Omnivore Books! I know I probably sound like a broken record by now, but it means the WORLD to me. Y’all really know how to make a girl feel special. I am so thankful for each of you! Thank you for bringing your hugs, warm smiles and happy spirits to the bookstore yesterday. I so appreciate it.

{thank you, Hannah, for the photo!}

Yay! I was so nervous but seeing all your grinning faces put me right at ease. I love you all!

Now, let’s talk about these cookies. And how you need to go gather some zucchini right now! Like, out in your yard….or at the nearest grocery store. Oh man, are these ever good! They are the perfect combination of fudgy {seriously- they are like gooey brownies!} and crunchy, and you’d never guess in a million years that they are chock-full of veggies.

I LOVE these cookies {original recipe by Julia!} and was so excited to re-create them on The Tasty Kitchen Blog a few weeks ago. I was a liiiiiiiiiittle hesitant, though, because while I love zucchini bread, I had never had chocolate zucchini anything before. I wasn’t quite sure how the combination would work.

But, they did! Oh, did they ever.

They are supremely chocolatey and ooey gooey, with crunchy crackly powdered sugar tops. You’re going to love these! They really do remind me of brownies…in the shape of cookies.

      Jenna, just to let you know the link you attached to my name (Julia) points to a different food blog…my blog is http://www.roastedrootfood.com. The site you have it pointed to is also called The Roasted Root (same name as my blog), but was created by a different woman. Just thought I’d let ya know ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again.

    Jenna, I am SO disappointed I couldn’t make it yesterday ๐Ÿ™
    Have had it on my calendar ever since you announced it, but the combination of BART being down for an hour and the 49ers game down the freeway from Omnivore made traffic from East Bay horrendous, worse than any rush hour I have ever seen. I know you have another in SF later this month…any others on the horizon for No Cal?
    I am so happy you had a wonderful turn out, all your readers love you!

    These look absolutely devine and I will definitely go check out the recipe!! Can’t wait to read your book. Maybe eventually it will be on audible.com? I mostly have to listen, as I do a lot of driving, but don’t have a lot of time to sit down with a book.

    I made these last night, and they were awesome. Very moist. The dough was a tad on the salty side, so I was worried a little they would be too salty, but they turned out perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ Brought them in to work, and they were gone by Noon! Definitely making them again.

    I made these with my three-year-old daughter today. She is expert at rolling them in the bowl of powdered sugar. Slightly crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and so chocolaty – Yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
