Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits are good



I mean, what the hell is a zucchini doing in a biscuit? Well, it belongs there. These choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits have a chewiness that is rather addictive.

Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits #cookies #zucchiniActually, zucchinis seem to belong most places, but I don’t think it should ever dine alone. I can’t stand zucchini by itself – heave! It needs to be surrounded by other flavours to be at its best. Do you feel that way too?

Make these semi-healthy zucchini biscuits and don’t let the random zucchini put you off. Oh, and you can leave out the choc chips if your kids don’t need fooling.
