Low Carb Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Brownie CookiesOK, so the recipe for Mocha Zucchini Brownies/Mocha Ganache was just a happy mistake but these chocolate brownie cookies where definitely not. I don’t make many cookie recipes but as I was sitting on the couch last night thinking (about food) it came to me if you made a mistake with the brownies could you make a good brownie cookie on purpose? I got to work first thing in the morning and the answer was a resounding yes.

I’m betting if you made these for your kids (and that includes a kid husband) and left them on the counter?…they would disappear as if by magic.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. Work quickly. Once you have added the zucchini to the dough it can tend to become watery so do not dilly dally around. Stick in the oven immediately.
  2. Suggestion: If you let your zucchini sit out on the counter for 3-4 days they begin to lose some of their moisture and for this particular recipe it's a good thing as that moisture can make the cookies spread more than they otherwise would. But a little spread or not these are fantastic.
  3. Each brownie cookie is a pretty good size at about 3" in diameter.
  4. If you do not have a fine grater for the zucchini you can process or chop it a bit after grating. The idea is to not have long strands of zucchini.
  5. I freeze* my cookies first so that when I drizzle on the ganache it becomes hard quickly.
