Healthy Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Healthy Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

If have plenty of zucchini laying around you need to try these Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are healthy, super moist and easy to make.

This recipe makes 12 muffins.  I recommend doubling the recipe, because they are that good.  I know that when I make them they only last a few days.  The kids love them.

Perfect for a quick breakfast or a snack for the kids when they come home from school.
