1/2cupzucchini, coarsely grated and drained (see post for more on this)
3/4cupold fashioned oats
1and 1/2 cups instant oats
1/3cupmini-chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling (optional)
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl combine the honey and melted coconut oil; whisk smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating smooth after each addition. Whisk in vanilla, zucchini, and applesauce. All at once add in both oats, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, mini-chocolate chips, and salt; gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until evenly combined. Cover the bowl and chill for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
When you're ready to bake:
Preheat oven to 325 (F). Scoop 3 tablespoon sized potions of the mixture into your palm and roll it into a large ball. Press the cookie down onto the prepared sheet and using your palm flatten the cookie down to 1/4 inch (the cookies do not spread at all while baking); repeat with all cookie dough. Bake for 18 minutes. Sprinkle a few mini-chocolate chips on the top of each cookie right when they come out of the oven, if desired. Allow cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet before serving.
