Easy Peach Cake & Cheesy Zucchini Cookies

Although some people may not be keen on zucchini, these cheese zucchini cookies are better than everyone were expecting them to be! I have only tried grated zucchini in my quinoa burgers and I always used to think I’d dislike it but these cookies definitely took me by surprise. They may be similar to a fritter in a sense, if you don’t like calling them cookies because they aren’t sweet.
