I followed the recipe exactly, plus threw in some chopped pecans. Barbara Kingsolver, you are a cooking baking genius ! The whole wheat flour makes them hold together really well, and the honey flavor is subtle and not too sweet they way white sugar can be. It also keeps the cookies from becoming so crunchy and brittle. You can see the zucchini, but you can't really taste it. Hidden vegetables, I love it! And so will my picky toddler :) I will admit, I was a little leery while I was making them. But YUM! This is soooooo a keeper!
