These muffins are so moist and delicious! The pineapple, zucchini & nuts provide nutrition and fiber; but the chocolate chips make them taste more like cake than a muffin. For more nutrition, use 2 1/2 cups of flour and 1/2 cups of wheat germ in place of the 3 cups of flour. One batch makes 24 muffins. When cool, you can wrap individual muffins in foil and store in freezer. You'll always have muffins on hand for breakfast or a snack. Enjoy!
