Zucchini Walnut Chocolate Chippers Recipe

Zucchini Walnut Chocolate Chippers Recipe
Got Zucchini? End of summer usually means plenty of zucchini and these soft, old-fashioned cookies are a good way to use it up. Zucchini Walnut Chocolate Chippers are easy to put together, and are great for the cookie jar. Kids even like these cookies, and most won't have any idea that they are eating zucchini. These are especially good warm from the oven when the chocolate is gooey and the cake-like cookies are very soft.
While the original recipe calls for walnuts, you can substitute pecans or almonds if you prefer; or if you don’t like nuts, you can leave them out.
