  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk depending how runny you want the icing
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract


  • Whip butter, oil and sugars together until fluffy, 2 minutes. Mix in egg, vanilla and grated zucchini. Carefully mix in all dry ingredients until incorporated. Scoop onto greased cookie sheet and bake 7-9 minutes at 350. Delicious warm, or cooled.

For the Icing:

  •  Mix all ingredients together in small bowl until smooth in consistency.  Decorate with red sprinkles.


-If you don't care so much about these being healthy, then you can substitute 1 whole egg for the egg whites and you can use all white (all-purpose) flour instead of whole wheat flour.
