These cookies came about when my three year old woke up one morning asking for “chocolate cookies”. A kid after my own heart. We both love breakfast cookies made with oats and I’ve been on an almond flour kick lately so that’s what I started with! I also wanted to use up some in season zucchini I had in the fridge. You could do chocolate chips (my son’s preference) but I was all out and honestly, didn’t miss them.
A little tip for almond flour… It can be pricey to purchase so I always make my own. I buy almonds in bulk and simply grind them (in my Vitamix or food processor) until they resemble flour!
These cookies are chewy, with good texture. They’re full of vitamins and minerals thanks to the almonds, oats, zucchini, flax etc and aren’t too sweet! Because you know, sometimes I want a sweet cookie and sometimes I want a less sweet one!
If you make these, let me know! Tag @liftinglettuce
