Chocolate chip Zucchini muffin





Healthy and tasty! This is very easy to bake, and very nicely hides the fact that you have a vegetable in the muffin! This recipe was adapted from here.



Ingredients



  1. All Purpose flour –3 cups
  2. Baking soda- 1 tspn
  3. Baking powder – 1/2 tspn
  4. Cinnamon – 3 tspn
  5. Nutmeg – 1/8 tspn
  6. Sugar – 1 3/4 cups (I used 1.5 cups of brown sugar instead)
  7. Eggs –3
  8.  Oil - 1 cup (olive or vegetable)
  9. Vanilla  extract – 2 tspn
  10. Zucchini – 2 cups (I used like 3 cups)
  11. Salt -1 tspn
  12. Chocolate Chip (optional) – 1 cup (I used mini chips, which had the right amount of sweetness with each bite)




Method



  1. Prepare the wet ingredients – beat eggs, mix in sugar, vanilla extract, and mix well.
  2. Lightly peel, and grate zucchini. Add this to the wet ingredients.
  3. Prepare dry ingredients – mix flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
  4. Add the dry to the wet ingredients. Mix well. Add chocolate chips and/or nuts to the wet mix.
  5. Pour into 2 (already greased, and floured) bread pans or as I did 1 muffin tray, and one bread pan.
  6. Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes or till poking center portion with a toothpick comes out clean.
