Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In an electric mixer, combine the margarine and sugars and mix until creamy. Add in the egg, vanilla and zucchini until everything is well combined. Slowly add in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and oats. Mix or stir in the chocolate chips and 1/4 c. chia seeds. Drop by heaping tablespoon on a parchment lined baking sheet.
