"In my efforts to use the abundance of zucchini in my garden I concocted this little cookie. I prefer my oatmeal cookies to have a little jazz, so if you are not a fan of ground cloves, they can be omitted. It's a not too sweet cake-like cookie that is perfect with your cup of coffee or tea."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
  2. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves in a bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until creamy. Add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour mixture and oats until just incorporated.
  3. Wring the zucchini in a clean towel to remove any excess moisture. Stir the zucchini and raisins into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the bottom edges turn golden brown.

Too cake like for my taste

These were too dense and cakey.

YUM! I made these cookies for Hubby for Father's Day as oatmeal is his favorite cookie. I did not plant zucchini this year but my friend gifted me some when I had her and her hubby for dinner...

I had a good feeling about these cookies even before I baked them. The spicy cake like texture combined with oats and in my case the addition of a few mini chocolate chips made for a very good ...
