1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 1/2 cups Zucchini, Shredded
2 1/2 cups Chocolate Chips
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Beat butter on medium until pale in color. Add both sugars and mix until well-combined. With mixer running on low, add eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture.
Place shredded zucchini in a dish towel and twist and squeeze until you have removed as much moisture as possible. Dump zucchini onto a paper towel and pat dry.
Fold zucchini and chocolate chips into batter.
Scoop batter onto prepared pans. Bake one pan at a time, approximately 10-12 minutes, rotating halfway through. Cookies will be slightly golden-brown but still pale.
Allow them to cool on the rack and enjoy!
