Oatmeal Cranberry Zucchini Cookies

I wanted to bake something healthy for the kids get-together we have every month. The kids come prepared with a topic already chosen and present it. We also organize other activities which they actually enjoy doing while in fact they are learning a thing or two. Another incentive for them is enjoying a variety of snacks and I try my best not to miss the opportunity to try new recipes. When I was looking for recipes, I found this cookie recipe. I made some changes to make it egg free and accommodate the zucchini I had, instead of the apples mentioned in the original recipe. Just like blueberries, I love baking with zucchini. It melds beautifully in most of the recipes and gives the baked goods a moist texture while boosting the nutritional value. This oatmeal cookie recipe is no exception to it and turned out delicious. Needless to say, it was a hit with the children and they kept asking for more. These cookies won’t get crispy because of the zucchini. Instead it has a cake like chewy texture.

Mini Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love zucchini because it blends very well in any baking recipe. It’s like the chameleon of vegetables. Not only does it up the nutritional value without boasting its presence but also makes the baked goods moist. It especially pairs very well with chocolate, which I know from baking these zucchini recipes. So this chocolate chip zucchini muffin recipe is no exception and it was super delicious. I found the original recipe here and made some changes to make it egg free. It is a wholesome lunch box treat or an after school snack. I have no doubt that this muffin will make it to your kid’s favorite recipes list.

Pistachio Ice Cream

Chocolate ice cream, pistachio ice cream or any ice cream with nuts has always been my favorite. My absolute favorite was the Cassata ice cream. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s an ice cream cake, with a layer of cake topped with three flavors of ice cream (usually strawberry, vanilla and pistachio) and chopped nuts. Even now whenever I go to India I don’t miss to buy this ice cream at least a couple of times.
