Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Zucchini MuffinsPosted: October 22, 2012
Have you ever perfected a recipe and wanted everyone you love to try it? Well, this is one of those…
I was lucky enough to be able to use mostly local ingredients for this recipe, except for the chocolate chips, of course! I used organic eggs from sunworks farms, delicious soft white wheat from none other than Gold Forest Grains, and the zucchini I grew in my own back yard!
These beauties came straight out of the oven!
Here they are, on the cooling rack.

You will need:
- 3 cups grated zucchini
- 2/3 cup melted unsalted butter
- 1 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 cups whole grain flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1.5 cups of milk chocolate chips
Melt butter and set aside to cool slightly. Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Stir these dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture. Sit in chocolate chips.
Coat each muffin cup in your muffin pan with vegetable oil spray. Use a spoon to distribute the muffin dough equally among the cups, filling the cups up completely. Bake on the middle rack until muffins are golden brown about 20 to 25 minutes minutes. Set on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy, a lot!
