If you like the flavors of chocolate and almond together, you'll love this moist and tender zucchini muffin recipe. The almonds really make the difference - extract adds flavor and slivered ones give the muffins a little crunch. Once baked, the muffin tops have a nice sugary crust. A great recipe to try when zucchini is abundant. They'll be delicious for breakfast, snack or a dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
