Zucchini Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

When I have a surplus of zucchini in my garden, I will make the usual zucchini bread but I also make these oatmeal cookies. They always get raves and requests for the recipe so I figured it was about time I recorded it here!

This last batch I used a 1/2 cup of ground old fashion oats in place of the wheat flour and they were great again!

Instructions:  

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  4. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
