Chocolate Zucchini Muffins Recipe

My local grocery store was having an awesome sale on zucchini last week, so I stocked up before planning what to do with it!  Some of my favorite recipes are the ones that include zucchini, like our Chocolate Zucchini Bread and Chocolate Zucchini Cake.  You can’t taste the zucchini but it makes everything so moist and delicious!  These muffins are no exception.  My kids loved them!

        Thanks very much. I ended up using all purpose flour and making regular size muffins. They were good and a hit with the kids. I only made 1/2 the recipe so I used 1 egg and ground flax with water to get the other 1/2 of the egg. Also added a little shredded carrot.
