1/2 cup butter flavored shortening (Bob uses Promise)
1/2 cup white sugar (Bob cuts this by 1/3 cup)
1/2 cup brown sugar (Bob uses Sugar Twin, a product that's 50% brown sugar and 50% artificial sweetener)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups grated zucchini
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease cookie sheets.
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the grated zucchini. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
