Reviews for Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins
Sort By :
"I added extra zucchini (1 1/2 cups as one rave reviewer did) and the texture was a bit weird. The taste was yummy, though. I will try it again and only use 1 cup of zucchini."
"This recipe was quick and easy and the muffins turned out very moist! My husband was impressed because you couldn't even tell zucchini was in it. I will definitely be making these again!"
"These are very moist and very delicious :)"
"I love these muffins. I've made them for friends and family and shared them at work. My teammate requested that I bring them again. I won a champion ribbon when I entered them at our community fair two years ago."
"Y U M M Y !! This recipe is a keeper. I'm not a great cook, okay ... I'm not even a good cook :P So I've searched high and low for muffin and bread recipes that will help me fake it. I made muffins and then bread from the same recipe and my family devoured them. I made slight changes by adding an entire shredded zucchini and I still couldn't taste the zucchini. Not that I mind the taste but I love making yummy treats that my son will eat but doesn't know he's eating veggies :D Also, I added carob chips replacing the chocolate since I'm allergic to milk. They were fantastic! I'll be making more over the holidays to give as gifts :)"
