Reviews for Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins
"My only change to the recipe was to add more chocolate chips, and we loved them!! So did our neighbors that I shared them with."
"These are amazing and wonderful. I used applesauce instead of oil and added some Chia seeds and flaxseed, going to make some with raisins next time and see how that is! Thank you so much for the recipe!!"
"These are good, but I enjoy zucchini bread better."
"Was not sure my children would like this but they ate them up!!"
"These muffins are delicious! Moist and soft with just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate chips. The cinnamon tastes wonderful with the chocolate chips and the toasted flavour of the walnuts really take it over the top! Wonderful snack or breakfast treat anytime but especially late summer/early fall. Great way to use up excess zucchini from the garden!"
"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 :)"
