Zucchini, Ginger & Cacao Cookies

I had a Vision Board Workshop scheduled and then an unexpected snow happened that prevented me from getting to the store. Therefore, I had to piece together ingredients and hope for the best! And my prayers were answered because they were DELICIOUS! And a hit at the Vision Board Workshop, win, win! Therefore, if you only have Almond flour or only have Gluten Free All purpose flour, then use 1 cup of each instead of 1/2 cup of each. I just happened to only have 1/2 a cup of each left. However, the combination of the two worked great!

Health Benefits:

  • Zucchini: Loaded with Vitamin C that can help your blood cells function better.
  • Ginger: A great anti-inflammatory aid that can help with stomach aches and reduce muscle pain and soreness.
  • Cacao: Can help improve mood because it contains an adrenaline chemical that is created when we get excited.

Fun Fact:

These cookies turn green…literally! But don’t be alarmed; it’s totally edible and delicious! Place in fridge for longer shelf life.

Oh wait, they are GREEN!

Dry Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup 1-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 Ounces Cacao (Unsweetened Chocolate)
Wet Ingredients
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Sunflower Butter or Peanut Butter
  • 1 Medium Zucchini peeled and shredded
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
  1. Peel, shred and then ring out excess water of the zucchini and set aside. 

  2. Mix sugar, sunflower butter, coconut oil and zucchini together. Then add egg, vanilla and almond extract. Blend again to ensure all wet ingredients are mixed together. 

  3. I mixed all dry ingredients (except cacao!) into a measuring cup but bowl works too. Add to the food processor, blend or hand-mixer and mix all together. 

  4. Place in pre-heated 350 degrees oven for 12-15 minutes. The batter is wet and sticky. I had to wet my hands with water to help shape them. 

  5. I always sprinkle salt on the top but my brother said he preferred it without. So…totally up to you!
