  • 1 large egg , room temperature
  • 1/4 cup ghee , softened (OR can use softened grass-fed butter (my first choice for best taste and texture) OR refined coconut oil for dairy-free
  • 1/2 cup golden monk fruit sweetener (I have not tried this recipe with SWERVE or STEVIA so can't speak to the results if you use those) OR coconut sugar for paleo
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely grated zucchini , be sure to squeeze out as much water as possible after measuring
  • 1 cup super fine blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2/3 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 oz dairy-free sugar free chocolate , coarsely chopped (we like Lily's Sweets or Hu's Kitchen Gems for paleo)
  • Coarse sea salt , for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg then whisk in softened ghee, sweetener and vanilla extract. Add the grated zucchini and mix until combined.

  5. Use a small cookie scoop to drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet. The cookies do NOT spread much so gently flatten the dough with your hand or the bottom of a small glass.
