    ladypit's Note:

    I love my Martian Cookies (Zucchini & lots of other stuff!) as does my husband, but it has a lot more butter then really I want to use on a regular basis. A gift of some zucchinis prompted me to try and reduce the fat a little. This has not become a health cookie, but they tasted quite good and I didn't want to lose my proportions. You might also notice that this batch is double the original. It's because I usually double it plus I noticed in reviews that some others do too. I made these really big and so only got about 55 cookies. If you make them smaller you will, of course, get more cookies!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      With a mixer blend the butter and applesauce. Add the sugars and the Splenda and beat well. It will never get fluffy and it might have little specks of butter in with the applesauce. This is just fine.
    3. 3
      Add the egg whites and the vanilla and mix well.
    4. 4
      Add the 2 flours, the cinnamon, the baking soda, and the salt. Using the low setting on the mixer blend in the flour.
    5. 5
      Using a spoon add the oatmeal, zucchini, and chips. (I ran out of chocolate and used more butterscotch. Use what you would like to end up with 2 cups of chips).
    6. 6
      Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes or until they are starting to brown.

      These are excellent! I used whole wheat flour for the requested bean flour as I would never find it here in town. I had everything else on hand so decided to go for it. I peeled the zucchini and grated it and got it into the mix while DH was out so he's been eating them like mad, men! I made a 25 cookie batch and it made a lot more. Man, do we have cookies, it's great. For cookies these are very healthy they come up moist and tender and mine baked in about 9 mins. I must have made them quite a bit smaller than Ladypit's. I don't think I'm going to have to worry about freezing any. DH just passed through and grabbed 3 more.
