Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies

These huge flourless Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies are a healthy way to start your day without feeling deprived!

Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies

I found another way for you to use up all of your zucchini! These Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies are about to replace all of those slices of zucchini bread.

What is it about zucchini that allows it to get to like 500 pounds? Are they born with steroids already in them?

My grandparents grow it every year, and without a doubt, there’s always a couple that ends up over five pounds. I ended up in the possession of one of those this weekend, and suffice to say, I’m stocked for a while.

I reserved 1 cup of the zucchini I shredded for these insane breakfast cookies, which you HAVE to make. They’re perfect for the back-to-school season because you can take them in the car or pack them in a lunch box, and the whole family will love them.

Speaking of back to school, it’s almost that time! I don’t have any kids of my own yet, but I can still remember the thrill that came with the start of a new school year.

Even now, when I see the school supply displays, I get a twinge of excitement for the fresh start. It’s like New Years Day for kids!

If you’re a teacher, hat’s off to you because it’s one of the most thankless jobs out there. If I could make each and every one of you a batch of these for breakfast, I so would!
