Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Zucchini and Carrots

I was craving cookies last week and since we are trying to eat healthy, I decided that adding veggies to cookies makes them healthier.

Am I right?

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Zucchini and Carrots

Please tell me that I’m right because these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Zucchini and Carrots are delicious!  So delicious that you won’t be able to eat just one.

I’m pretty sure I at at least four just moving them from the cookie sheet to the cooling rack.

Oatmeal Cookies with Zucchini and Carrots

I had no idea that adding carrots and zucchini to oatmeal raisin cookies would be such a great combination!  And since I will take cookies over cake any day, these might just be my new favorite dessert.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Zucchini and Carrots


  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. Step 1: Cream butter and sugar together in large bowl.
  2. Step 2: Add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing.
  3. Step 3: Mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture.
  4. Step 4: Stir in zucchini, oatmeal, and raisins.
  5. Step 5: Roll balls of dough and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.
  6. Step 6: Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.

I think I could justify eating these every night!

Happy Friday!

Hip Hip Hooray – It’s Friday!

I can’t believe it’s almost October.  This month seems to have flown by.  But I’m loving the weather.  We opened the windows and I’ve been wearing all my favorite hoodies.  Bring on the fall weather!

Last weekend we drove to Maryland for a birthday party.  We spent the Friday night at my brother’s house so we could spend time with my niece and nephew.  We always have such a great time when we’re all together.  It makes me wish we still lived in Maryland.


Then Saturday, we spent all day at a local park for a friend’s birthday party.  Connor and his cousin rode their scooters the entire time while we were able to catch up with a lot of friends we hadn’t seen in awhile.

And I could seriously take pictures of this cute boy all day long.  Too bad he usually runs when he sees me with a camera.

 Saturday night we went to the Orioles game with my parents, brother, and a few of our friends.

The Orioles have won the AL East (not sure what that really means but it sounds good).  My brother and husband are huge Orioles fans so we had a great time.  Plus, it was so great to see everyone wearing orange and black.


And the other night Connor and I stopped at a local farmer’s market to pick up some veggies and we bought our first pumpkin.  They also had homemade pumpkin pie ice cream that was amazing.  Tim is out to sea for a few days so Connor and I ate ice cream for dinner:)

So, now I want to hear all about your week.

What exciting things have you been up to and what plans do you have for the weekend?
