Here are a couple of great snack ideas for St. Patricks Day as well:

Irish Apples

Pair this great veggie snack with an equally wonderful fruit snack. To make Irish Apples, cut some Granny Smith apples into wedges. Then mix equal parts cream cheese and mallow cream and add food colouring to them. The kids will all love dipping their apple wedges into this delicious dip!

Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

If you want to send your child to school with something a little more sugary, you can make Zucchini Oatmeal cookies. The zucchini and oatmeal keep these cookies a little healthier than other varieties and you don’t even need to add food colouring – they will be green when you cook them because of the zucchini. This is what you will need:

• ½ cup butter
• ¾ cup white sugar
• 1 egg
• ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 ½ cups grated zucchini
• 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
• ½ teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 cup quick-cooking oats
• 1 cup granola
• 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1.) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.) Cream together the butter and sugar in a medium bowl until they are fluffy. Add the egg and the vanilla and mix until it is fully blended and then stir in the shredded zucchini. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir the dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture. Then add the oats, the granola, and the chocolate chips.
3.) Drop teaspoonfuls of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving approximately two inches between cookie drops. Bake in the preheated oven for ten to twelve minutes

  1. Thanks for the inspiration! I grew up loving zucchini cookies, but they were never with oatmeal. That sounds like a wonderful upgrade. I just love them with lots of cinnamon... all warm and spicy!

  2. Oh, I still have lots of shredded zucchini in my freezer. Might have to try those cookies!
