Recipe by ladypit
I found these online many years ago. I think they are called martian cookies because of the green zucchini flecks. My husband loves them and has asked for them repeatedly, but I had lost the recipe. I haven't made them in awhile and therefore the serving size is approximate.

I can't believe that I haven't rated these cookies yet! I have made atleast six batches of these cookies and they are by far my family's favorite. My kids actually took these cookies to school and told the other grade schoolers what they were! They were ridiculed mercilessly and by the end of the week the other kids were trying to trade thier food for my kid's cookies! I have frozen several batches of dough and baked the cookies later - and rest assured they were just as good as the first batch. I have to admit, I had a bit of trouble with the first batch. I thought they were not cooking at all (even to the point that I thought my oven wasnt on) yet the bottoms were burned to a crisp. This is a cookie that must be baked with "the force" you need to trust that when the recipe says it's done- it's done! when it says "golden brown" its not talking about the top of the cookie, its talking about the bottom. Thank you so much for posting!
