National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! 

So in order to celebrate I made chocolate chip cookies (of course).  But of course we couldn't just make any chocolate chip cookies we made chocolate chip cookies garden style...with zucchini!  

I got the recipe from Right@Home and personally I think they're delicious!  

All it takes is the following ingredients: 
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (which I forgot...oops)
2 eggs
2 cups shredded zucchini (this took one medium sized zucchini from the Farmers' Market)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
And of course you could always add chopped walnuts I just didn't because I'm sharing them with my coworkers.  

I added more chocolate chips because they're CHOCOLATE CHIP cookies so obviously they should have more than just a few chips.  

I had to add more flour because the first batch of cookies looked like this: 

But even a little more flour they were still runny.  So I would say more flour or a zucchini with a little less juice in it (it was practically water running down my hands while I was grating it).  

But all in all I find National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day to be a success!
