Zucchini Cookies

Actually, Dresden gave me this recipe from one of her old roommates a while back. Here's the blog. They are sooo good and everyone is surprised when you tell them that they're pretty good for you. Just mix everything together (don't ever overmix cookies or they'll get tough). My trick is underbaking cookies so they stay fresh longer. I'll probably be making these tonight because it's been way too long since I've had them!

1 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. applesauce
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. oatmeal
1 c. grated zucchini
1 c. chocolate chip
