I first thought I'd make zucchini bread, but decided I wanted to make muffins because I am all about the portion control. I like knowing exactly how much each muffin calculates to be calorie-wise. I know. I am crazy.
Healthy Whole Wheat Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins
makes 20 muffins
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup splenda (or no calorie sweetener of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz plain fat free greek yogurt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350. Mix together brown sugar, splenda, egg, vanilla, and greek yogurt. Combine baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and flour. Add in grated zucchini, and chocolate chips. My zucchini was actually more pureed than grated because I did it in the food processor. You can make it the consistency that you prefer.
Spray your muffin tins with non-stick spray. Fill muffin tins about half full. Cook for 15 minutes in oven, or until they pass the toothpick test.
Have you been using the fresh produce from your gardens or local produce stands? I have been loving all of the fresh goodness! Do you prefer quick breads or muffins? I love breads, but I like being able to freeze muffins and have them portion controlled for me!
