Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

I made us some homemade chocolate chip zucchini muffins this week, and they were really good!  Hidden veggies are a bonus!  At my kid’s age, it’s not really “hiding” anymore, but they ate the green stuff anyway!

This recipe is from Mel @ The Larson Lingo.  We found each other’s blogs and not only have a last name in common, but we both have a Kate!  You should check out her cute blog!
Ingredients:1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. 
Mix egg, oil, milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in another bowl.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in zucchini & chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 
*I omitted the lemon juice and added a little extra milk, and I only used about 1 cup of zucchini.*

I chose to use a silicone muffin pan and forego the paper.  We ate a few, and I threw the rest in a ziploc freezer bag.  When you feel like a muffin, grab one out of the freezer, and microwave it for about 25 seconds.  Great for snacking and last minute breakfasts!
