Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Packed with fiber, whole grains, and yes, zucchini. Zucchini keeps the muffins moist and makes them super nutritious. Perfect back to school recipe for the kiddies...Yes, it's about that time.


Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup millet flour (or other whole grain)
1/2 cup oat bran
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup zucchini, grated (I use my food processor)*
1 egg
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another bowl.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix through. Fold in the chocolate chips.
4. Pour the batter into a muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray. Cook 25-30 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.

*Try peeling the zucchini before grating it if you think your kids will be turned off from seeing green pieces in the muffin
