Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’d love to show you a photo of my scrumptious zucchini chocolate chip muffins, but they never last long enough to capture on film!  But, trust me, you’re going to want to keep track of this recipe!  Every time I make them, my kids smother me with hugs and kisses and tell me I’m the best mom ever.  Not even kidding!  They love these things that much.

This year I haven’t gotten any zucchini from my garden.  Nope, not. a. single. one.  Major {un}perfect fail!  Still not sure what the problem was.  Luckily I had some generous friends who were willing to share a few of their billy club sized green monsters, which I immediately shredded and froze for future muffin-making.

When I make these, I always double the recipe so I end up with at least 4 dozen.  I freeze about half of them and *try* to forget about them so that we don’t finish all 48 within the week.  Sometimes I make the double batch with half  shredded zucchini and half mashed bananas.  SO GOOD!  And, without further ado…the recipe!
