In my efforts to use the abundance of zucchini in my garden I concocted this little cookie. I prefer my oatmeal cookies to have a little jazz, so if you are not a fan of ground cloves, they can be omitted. It’s a not too sweet cake-like cookie that is perfect with your cup of coffee or tea.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves in a bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until creamy. Add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour mixture and oats until just incorporated.
Wring the zucchini in a clean towel to remove any excess moisture. Stir the zucchini and raisins into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the bottom edges turn golden brown.

Eat healthy breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a best way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
