Original recipe yields 5 dozen cookies



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Stir the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Beat the sugar and margarine with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended; beat the vanilla into the mixture with the last egg. Stir the zucchini through the mixture until evenly distributed. Mix the flour mixture into the zucchini mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in batches in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes because allrecipes changed some things: 2. You don't have to go in any silly order--just mix the dry ingredients, then the wet. Then combine the two and add chocolate chips. 3. The edges, unless you didn't use enough cocoa powder, will NOT be golden.

I made this recipe for recipe group 07/30/2011. I thought the cookie sounded interesting, but I honestly really didn't care for these much personally. They tasted like a very cakey chocolate chip cookie mixed with a gingerbread cookie. I made 1/2 the recipe and got 33 cookies which was plenty. I realized the spices called for cloves and it got me worried about the final flavor. I think of Christmas when I think of cloves. So, I decided to do half the cloves suggested. However, it was still way too strong in my opinion. I let a couple of other people try one and one of them said, oh you made gingerbread cookies. So, I realized I was not the only one. I hadn't even mentioned what was in them. I can only faintly see the zucchini. It almost looks likes pistachios and it can't be tasted at all except for their texture a bit. I did eat a couple of them and the taste did start to grow on me as they cooled. It is possible I may have thought differently of the spice of this cookie on a Christmas tray. I don't know.



These were to die for! I didn't even notice the zucchini. I love the spices. Others might not enjoy the strong clove flavor, but I did!
