Throw your taste buds a curveball with these old-fashioned, soft and gooey chocolate-chunk oatmeal cookies by adding coconut to them. Then throw the curveball a curveball by hiding some shredded zucchini inside them. The zucchini`s taste isn`t all that noticeable and it adds that much more moisture to the cookies. Trust me, I`m a nutritionist ๐Ÿ™‚ …
