CHOCOLATE CHIP ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

Jan 6, 2019  |  muffins, baking, breakfast, dairy-free option

Hey busy people. Breakfast can be tough sometimes. Feeding the kids, feeding yourself, it’s all a challenge. I’m hoping these muffins give you some relief. They’re not too sweet and so damn delicious at the same time. I am personally really into the coffee + muffin thing, so if you’re like me and enjoy that lifestyle, you’ll love this.

When we make them, they’re literally gone in 2 days or less. But if that doesn’t happen in your house you can for sure freeze these. I would wrap each one tightly in plastic wrap, then put them all into a container or large ziploc.

I’ve tried different zucchini muffin recipes. They are really not all the same, and I couldn’t find one I loved. Our incredible nanny (god bless her) is an amazing baker and helped me develop this one. We finally got it down to a science, so of course I have to share with everyone! I am telling you, you will be addicted! They are really so good!
