Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Dawn Whitted


I really enjoy this muffin recipe because it makes a big batch that I can easily freeze. My kids eat them for breakfast and I take them for a morning snack at work.

They sure don't last long at my house though.

This recipe can easily be cut in half and you could also add walnuts or craisins in the place of chocolate chips with similar results. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
