This recipe offers a way to use up all that zucchini from the garden or frozen shredded zucchini. These are great cookies and your children will not even realize they are eating a vegetable in this little treat.

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup honey
2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups zucchini, grated
1 cup raisins
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup walnut pieces
Cream shortening and honey, add eggs and beat well.  Mix in flours, spices, and zucchini and continue mixing.  Fold in oats, raisins and nuts.  Drop by tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes.   Makes 3 to 4 dozen depending on size you make cookies.  Enjoy!

    If you don’t have whole wheat flour can you use all purpose flour?
