Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits are good

by | Jan 10, 2019


I mean, what the hell is a zucchini doing in a biscuit? Well, it belongs there. These choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits have a chewiness that is rather addictive.

Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits #cookies #zucchiniActually, zucchinis seem to belong most places, but I don’t think it should ever dine alone. I can’t stand zucchini by itself – heave! It needs to be surrounded by other flavours to be at its best. Do you feel that way too?

Make these semi-healthy zucchini biscuits and don’t let the random zucchini put you off. Oh, and you can leave out the choc chips if your kids don’t need fooling.

This one is also good: Zucchini, carrot and apple loaf
