Zucchini Cacao Cookies

We are right in the height of zucchini season and I have pounds of zucchini sitting on my kitchen counter. My farmer friend, Gray, put in quite a few plants and they have been prolific. Inspired by an old, non-raw recipe for zucchini chocolate cake, I put together a raw food recipe for these little zucchini cacao bites. You, and your family will love them. They have a wonderful chocolate flavor and a moist, chewy texture. Feel free to add nuts!

    Can I use almond pulp flour?

      Sure, but you might have to make some modifications. And I wouldn’t use wet flour. Cheers!

    Is it possible to do this in an oven at a low heat?

      Please see the FYI section about preparing raw recipes in an oven. Cheers!

    @Lisa — I really like my Excalibur. I do need to get some sheets, though, for making fruit leathers and such.

    Susan, I am very excited! I have been thinking of adding more raw to my diet, but want more than just to eat fruits and veggies. I found your page yesterday and have been perusing since. After dropping my son off at school this morning, I was thinking about the carob zucchini GF cake I make last week. Yummy, but I get sleep after eating it. And I prefer cookies or bitesize bits to slices of cake. “Hmm, I wonder if I could make raw zucchini cookies?” And here it is. I have found several recipes I want to try and will have to work hard to choose which to make today! I am also really hopeful that some little bites of very nourishing food will encourage my son, who just doesn’t seem to care about food, to eat his lunch!

    Thanks and keep up the rawmazing work!

    made these today! Wow! I am hooked! They were absolutely delicious! I even added some raw coconut! Hard to for me to let them finish dehydrating! Your recipes are amazing! 🙂

    Hey Cindy, I know this is about 2 years too late in response to your question about agave, but for anyone else reading rawmazing’s archives–I’m going to try using coconut nectar instead of agave.
