Moist chocolate zucchini muffins with chocolate chips
There is a crispness in the air and the leaves are starting to change. Even though the temperatures have dropped, my garden is still going strong. Since I am back to work during the week days, I tend to only get into my garden on the weekends.
I keep finding giant sized zucchini that are magically growing during the week. Giant zucchinis are perfect grated up and used in these chocolate zucchini muffins!
Don’t feel like you need to let your zucchini grow to the giant size. These muffins can be made with smaller zucchini as well. If you don’t have a garden, lucky for you zucchini is readily available year round at most grocery stores. You never know when you might have a craving for moist, chocolaty zucchini muffins!
