Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Shared by: GN

A family favourite that evokes memories of many good times together. We love how the house smells as the cookies are baking and the Craisins, Zucchini and pumpkin seeds add a dash of nutrition in a sweetly decadent cookie. The craisins and zucchini keep the cookies moist if they are not eaten right away. I often freeze half the batch to keep from eating them all at once. They can be thawed with a quick zap in the microwave to taste like they are just out of the oven.


1 cup butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 slightly beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 – 2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup finely grated zucchini
1/2 cup semi-sweet choc chips
1/2 cup Craisins
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
finely grated orange rind from 1-2 oranges


Cream butter. Add sugar, beating until mixture is fluffy. Add egg and vanilla beating well. Mix in cocoa. Mix in remaining dry ingredients. Add zucchini and orange rind and mix well then stir in chocolate chips, craisins and pumpkin seeds.

Bake at 350, 10 minutes for large cookies, 7 minutes for small cookies.
