GF/SF Zucchini Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies!

ZUCCHINI CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free)

In a large bowl, combined:
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup chia seed (this, combined with the banana, binds the cookie together like an egg normally would)
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup mayple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract

In a separate bowl, combined: .
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup gf oats
1/2 cup gf all purpose mix
1/4 hemp protein
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg

Pour the second bowl into the first, then add:

1 finely shredded zucchini (about a cup)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup nuts of your choice (walnuts are delicious!)
Stir these into other ingredients, mix well.  Drop by spoonful onto greased baking (I used coconut oil)
sheet, and flatten with the back of a spoon.  Bake at 350°, 10 to 15 minutes.

This was originally adapted from the book Animal Vegetable Miracle (inspired me to eat locally! AND to live on a farm. We'll see about that one. At least I'm working on getting my own chickens.....), but then I went a  little crazy and it now looks nothing like the original recipe.  Oh well!  It has almost all the food groups (except the meat & dairy, but is that still a food group? Or is it the protein food group? Cause we have that....), it has protein, carbs, fruits AND veggies, the good kind of fat, and its delicious!
