Healthier Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

For the past few months, one of my jobs has been putting together our Weekly Healthy Menu Plan. One of my goals is to include a dessert recipe each week that uses little to none refined sugar. It’s been fun to experiment with different recipes and still make them taste good while providing a little more healthy option for my family.

If you have been wanting to feed your family a little healthier, be sure to check our Healthy Menu Plan out!

These cookies are easy, delicious, and your kids won’t even notice that they are full of good-for-you ingredients!

  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 medium
  • bananas)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed of excess
  • moisture with a paper towel
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix together mashed banana, shredded zucchini, honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. The dough will be a little sticky. Drop large spoonfuls on prepared baking sheet and slightly flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand.
  5. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until cookies start to turn golden brown on the edges. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
