I love my vegetables, but a girl's got to get creative sometimes.

Just like you can hide your spinach in a Mocha Frappuccino, you can hide zucchini in chocolate cookies.  These little gems will give your cookie some body, some fluff, some nutrients and most important, will help you get in 1 cup of vegetables per serving towards your 4 cups of vegetables on the Ideal Protein diet.

The taste is incredible!

The chocolate mixture looks quite interesting with the zucchini.  Doesn't it smell divine – like brownies – and yes – I did lick the bowl and spoon!

IP Chocolate Zucchini Mix

I use a Whoopie Pie Pan that's non stick to make the cookies so they come out nice and round and evenly portioned.

Serving is 6 cookies which makes 1 Ideal Protein meal and 1 cup of vegetables towards your 4 cups for the day.  I like sneaking vegetables in wherever I can, especially when they really enhance the flavor of other foods.
