When you grow zucchini in your garden there always seems to be that moment when you walk out to pick some and there is one the size of a baseball bat.  Those big ones are not good for much except baking.  If you have discovered a giant zucchini hiding in your garden lately, try this recipe to use it up.   You can mix and match this recipe:  no add ins, or add in chocolate chips or raisins or nuts--your choice.

2/3 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
Beat these ingredients well.  Then mix in
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
Beat well.  Mix in
2 c. grated zucchini (I did mine in the food processor)
Now add all these ingredients:
2 1/2 c. flour
2 t. cinnamon
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 t. soda
2 1/2 c. oats
Stir in  2 c. chocolate chips OR whatever add ins you desire (see note above)
