"We had a cooking class at Children's Hospital in Orange, CA. These were a favorite for the patients and adults. You should have been there to smell the wonderful scent of cookies right out of the oven and see the children's faces!!! I think these are called martian cookies because of the green flecks, and they are out of this world!!"

For a healthy cookie these hit the spot. I used brown sugar instead of white and cut it down to 1/2 cup. Also I used all whole wheat flour. The butterscotch chips make these phenomenal and so...

I substituted 1/4 c. vegetable oil and 1/4 fat free yogurt for butter and added about a cup of cocnut and they are fantastic!

What a fun recipe with a great name. You can say you don't like zucchini, but that excuse just doesn't apply to baked goods with zucchini as an ingredient! Zucchini makes baked goods more moist...
