I love love oatmeal raisin cookies! I thought I would never see a healthy recipe for them. I will be trying very soon. Thank you Heidi!
I was skeptical, but these are really good! Takes care of my sweet tooth…..
Hi! These sound so delicious! I was wondering… approximately how many cups of shredded zucchini do you use? Zucchini can vary so much in size that I wasn’t sure what was considered a medium or large zucchini. Thanks for the recipe! I look forward to trying it.
You’ll need one to one and a half cups shredded zucchini for this recipe. Enjoy!
This looks delicious, thank you for sharing!
I was so happy to eat this cookie. I made them with spelt flour and they were a little soft but wonderful. It is a thin cookie and great with coffee. Aug. 8th is my birthday and I did not have cake but I did have 2 cookies and coffee. First time in many years I didn’t eat cake (pad on the back for me!) My kids loved them! Making more for for the week. Thanks!
Hi, These sound really good, and the reviews are, too. Just wondering what kind of oats to use before I make them. Steel cut, rolled, quick cooking, old fashioned, etc ?
Hi Renee! Thanks for reaching out. We used rolled oats (old fashioned, regular-not quick cooking) for this recipe. Enjoy! -Heidi
Can I use maple syrup in place of honey so I can make them vegan? Thanks for sharing!
That should work great!
