Vacation and Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

Sorry I haven't posted lately, but I took a little blogging break while on vacation. 
We just returned from Disney World and our favorite vacation spot, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.
We love, love, love Hilton Head Island!

These refillable mugs are one of my favorite things about vacationing at Walt Disney Resorts - all the
Diet Coke I can drink :)

My daughter's boyfriend, Ryan, went with us.  He had never been to Florida, so it was fun showing him around.  We stayed at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort for five days and then spent the last three at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.  The weather was beautiful - nice and hot!

Thought I would share a couple of pics from our vacation and then share another yummy zucchini
recipe.  Enjoy :)

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

1 cup whole wheat flour (I used Soft White Wheat)
1 cup All-purpose Flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup applesauce or canola oil (I use applesauce)
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine brown sugar, zucchini, applesauce and vanilla is a medium size bowl and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  I use a medium size ice cream scoop to drop the dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes.  Makes 14 large cookies.


  1. Yall definitely look like a fun family! I'm looking forward to going to Disney one of these days. My baby isn't even one yet, so I've got a while before I get to go.

  2. Those cookies look so good. Reminds me of my Aunt's Applesauce Chocolate Chip cookies. Thanks for sharing.
