Low Fat Zucchini Cookies

My family is and always has been a dessert family. We love our sweets! The most important thing to remember about dessert and any sweets for that matter is moderation. There are always ways to make desserts healthier, and it's fun to try new ways of making classic favorites. Cookies for example...

I figured first off I'd better post the recipe that i get asked for more than any other. These healthy cookies are low fat, and SO SO SO good! I usually double the batch and freeze the cookies. They taste great after popping them into the microwave for 15 seconds.

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips
* Optional Items: Protein powder, wheat germ, craisins, etc.

Cream together sugar, butter, applesauce and egg. When well blended add dry ingredients, add zucchini and chocolate chips. When well blended spoon out onto cookie sheet sprayed with pam. Bake at 375 for 10-12 min. Makes about 3 dozen. Enjoy!

Nutrition Facts: per 1 cookie
Calories: 86
Fat: 3 grams
(2 grams saturated, 1 mono-unsaturated)
Carbs: 14 grams
Fiber: 1 gram
Protein: 1 gram

This is great when compared to an average homemade chocolate chip cookies which would be about 120-150 calories, and around 7-10 grams of fat for one cookie.

I am going to take a guess and assume that you got those nutrition sats from Fitday? That's what you should post about soon! Love that you are doing this!

Yum. I am not a low-fat dessert girl. I have always felt like dessert is dessert...not good for you. I decided to try these, and they are so good. I used whole wheat pastry flour and they turned out great. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Hey! I just made these but I made some substitutions for even more healthy and less sugar:
Instead of the butter I used coconut oil. Then I mashed in a banana and cut the sugar to 1/4 of a cup.

awesome recipe though!! thank you!

Watching his Sheldrakes 18 minute presentation in fact did
develop a paradigm shift in me, and i thought I'd presently completed all of the paradigm shifts I had been going to total offered I spent countless numbers of hours in meditation and undertaking psychic associated sessions soon after living for 27 years not knowing what I or others were able of. Sheldrake helps the expanding number of us whose realities are so various from mechanistic science that negates what we OBSERVE and Experience on a moment to moment level. It helps us deal together with the INSANITY of a viewpoint and dogma disguised as the reality beneath the lofty title of Science. Science has become hijacked by these with an agenda just as God continues to be hijacked by a variety of politicians! We need to consider it back so it can do what it was intended, move humanity forward, not backwards.
