This was a soft, delicious cookie. Made a few changes; pressed the moisture out of the shredded zucchini with paper towels, added just a tad more flour and oats. Cookies remained high and very tender. Will definitely make again.

these cookies were kind of hard to get off the sheet, might want to grease it really well...also was pretty flat and fell apart. i substituted chocolate chips for the nuts, and left everything else the same. flavor was really good, just need to figure out how to keep it together!

I used more zucchini and also added coconut with the raisins and pecans. Great!!!

This is a good soft cookie, I added a couple of tbls more of oatmeal, because the texture was too soft. I did not flatten them as the recipe suggested, it baked up very nice, I did bake for a couple of minutes more for a golden color. My husband liked them, so thats good.

This is a unique way to use extra zucchini. I made these to take camping and they were very good. I am keeping this one!

My son loves these cookies SOOOOOOO much! and my daughter that HATES zucchini loves them too! I've given these to neighbors that have given me the zucchini and they can't believe they are made with zucchini. These are a MUST try!!
