Great recipe! It was a hit at a mom's group picnic that I went to recently. I added 1 c. of chocolate chips, and increased the quantities of Zucchini, Oatmeal, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg.

I wish I could give this 4 stars, but I found these somewhat lacking in flavor. I doubled the cinmamon, added 1/2 t allspice & 1/2 t nutmeg, per others suggestions. I also doubled the zucchini, added some chopped pecans & more like 1 1/2 c of rasins. I'm fine with the "not too sweet", but the resulting cookies were spongy in texture and a bit bland for my taste. Sorry

I doubled the zucchini, eliminated the shortening, only used the egg white, and used allspice instead of nutmeg.
