Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Another wonderful find on allrecipes! These are really yummy and with the alterations I've made below - it sneaks in some healthy elements as well. We've gotten into a habit of having a muffin for Caelyn as a "come home from school snack" and these are a favorite for sure.


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or 1/4 oil and 1/4 applesauce)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Combine the egg, oil, milk, lemon juice and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in zucchini, chocolate chips and walnuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.

Yield: 1 dozen
