Snickers Zucchini Cookies

“The trouble is, you cannot grow just one zucchini. Minutes after you plant a single seed, hundreds of zucchini will barge out of the ground and sprawl around the garden, menacing the other vegetables.

Does adding Snickers candy to zucchini negate the health benefits of zucchini?   I know, I know, it’s debatable but it makes for a pretty awesome cookie! We are, after all, talking about cookies here.  The Snicker’s chocolate, caramel, nougat and peanuts is so well suited to a cookie, adding such terrific flavors.  The caramel and nougat just melt into the cookie dough.  Oh, so good!  The added zucchini keeps this easy drop cookie moist and chewy.  The nutritiously rich walnuts, chia and flax seeds are a healthy boost of fiber, good oils and crunchy texture.  These cookies just vanished, they were so irresistible!  And they’ll get you to use up some of that zucchini in the most decadent way!

Really good!  To fancy them up, I finished the cookies with a drizzle of melted chocolate.  They were soft with just the right crumbly texture.  And in every bite, the sheer deliciousness of caramel, chocolate and peanut combination that makes Snickers so famous and beloved.
