Ingredients

  • 2 cups zucchini, grated and squeezed dry
  • 1 large banana, ripened, mashed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand-held mixer to blend together the banana, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and eggs.  Mix very well until everything is very well combined.
  • Add in the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.  With the hand mixer on low, blend just until the flour is mixed into the wet ingredients.
  • Add the zucchini and 3/4 cup of the chips.  Fold into the muffin batter.
  • Use a large ice-cream scoop to portion the muffin batter into the 12 cavities.  Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips evenly over the 12 muffins.  
  • Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow the muffins to sit in the muffin pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack to finishing cooling.
