Whenever I make these muffins, I freeze several. As I'm leaving for work in the morning, I pull one out and enjoy it at the office with a cup of coffee. —Janet Pierce DeCori, Rockton, Illinois

"Omitted nuts due to allergies, doubled the amount of chips instead. Would also be great with cinnamon chips or even raisins. Perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack!"

"This is perfect with 1 cup zucchini, and i doubled the chocolate chips instead of using nuts. I have previously made this recipe with extra zucchini and the texture was off/too gooey."

"I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup, but was still too sweet for our taste. I also added a bit more mini chocolate chips and used a heaping cup of zucchini from the garden. Next time I would use 1/2 cup sugar."

"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 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!"
