Zucchini is my favourite veggie to bake with because it adds moisture to baked goods and a boost of nutrition to special treats like these super yummy chocolate chip zucchini muffins! They make the perfect afternoon snack and won't last long so I suggest that you make a double batch!
These zucchini muffins are healthier than most because they're naturally sweetened with honey. Make them even healthier and swap out the chocolate chips for nuts. Add extra fibre and swap half of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat.
Because zucchini has a mild flavour, it can be used in pretty much any baking recipe that calls for applesauce or mashed bananas. Just substitute it at a 1:1 ratio and make sure you drain it well before baking with it.
And if anyone in the family is picky about veggies in their baked treats, simply peel off the dark skin before shredding it, and no one will ever know :)
