Not sure what to do with all that zucchini? These zucchini muffins are the answer! Soft and moist, chocolatey chunks, these muffins turn out perfectly every time. Plus, there are almost 2 cups of shredded zucchini hiding in each one, this is the only way my hubby gets his veggies.

Muffins are one of my favorite things to make during the school year because they go great with a protein shake in the morning or a quick after-school snack.

Besides this muffin recipe, my family also makes requests for my Banana Blueberry Muffins and Skinny Chocolate Banana Muffins.

But it being fall, I love using up the zucchini in my garden, so zucchini muffins make an appearance far more often this time of year.

The batter is delicious, like seriously I have to try not to eat the entire thing, before getting these muffins into the oven. I am sure to lick the bowl clean though, reward you know, for baking.

HOW TO MAKE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners or grease and flour each muffin cup.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate mixing dish, whisk together the egg, oil, milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until combined only. Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.

Bake the muffins in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

HOW TO STORE MUFFINS

Keep any uneaten muffins in an air-tight Tupperware on the counter or, if you prefer them cold, in the fridge. They’ll stay fresh for 3 to 4 days.
