  • (Brands I used are linked below)

  • 1/2 Cup, Paleo Baking Flour Blend

  • 1/2 CUp Almond flour/meal

  • 1/2 Cup Cacao Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 2/3 Cup Granulated Sweetener

  • 1 tsp, Vanilla extract

  • 2 Eggs (large)

  • 2 TbL Unsweetened Applesauce

  • 2 TbL Coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 cup Zucchini(Grated ringed out)


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper

  1. I start with 1 med-large size zucchini and grated it very finely (pictured below) and place on a paper towel to squeeze out about 90% of the water out. Then should measure out roughly 1 cup of the grated zucchini. Then and set aside.

  2. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl and mix my wet into another.

  3. I pour wet into dry and start to mix. Lastly, Incorporate the grated zucchini into the batter. Try not to over mix.

  4. Your dough should be semi-firm like bread batter (not liquid like cake batter)

  5. I use a cookie scooper and place my cookies on a greased parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 min at 350 degrees. Take them out when the tops have set.

  6. Let cool before moving them to a plate (cookies are fragile when warm)


I keep my cookies in the fridge when using them for ice-cream sandwiches. Another option is to drizzle with white chocolate and keep on a glass platter for a all to enjoy! *CLICK* each image for Details*
