Wow, wow, wow, wow... Did I say WOW?! I made these for the daughter of a family I nanny for who will barely eat veggies. This sounded like the perfect way to sneak some in. After making 12 muffins, I had enough to fill a small ramekin and make a giant muffin that I thought about keeping for myself. After one bite, I wanted nothing more than to take the other 12 home myself! Only changes: I used 1/2 c whole wheat flour, 1/4 c applesauce, and 1/4 c veg oil. The only thing I didn't do that I'll do next time is peel the zucchini before shredding, therefore making the zucchini completely invisible. Overall, this is the best muffin recipe on this site!
These muffins are delicious!! I took some of the other suggestions. I doubled the chocolate chips and added a shredded, peeled apple with the zucchini. I did not have mini choc. chips, but regular worked just fine. For added fibre, I used half whole wheat flour. I only added half the oil - still very moist! I don't like nuts in muffins, so left them out. I doubled the recipe and it made 18 large muffins. Note: the batter is VERY thick, but once the zucchini is added, is perfect. Thanks for a great recipe!
My family loves these muffins. I make them often. The last time I made them, I grated 2 apples and added them to the batter. The muffins came out incredibly moist and sweet. My son loved them so much he insisted that I post it.
This is a fantastic way to use up zucchini. I make mini-muffins, as opposed to full-sized, and my kids (and husband) eat them up! My changes: a dash of nutmeg, dash of ginger, dash of cloves. A 4oz cup of applesauce with a splash of oil to complete the 1/2 cup and brown sugar instead of white.
These were great, however I did make a few changes. I used canola oil instead of vegetable oil--it's what I had on hand. I also used the regular sized chocolate chips--not mini, and used 1/2 cup of them. These are great--especially warm or reheated in the microwave.
I have made this recipe several time now. My daughter, who will eat nothing green, asks for these muffins! She even grates the zucchini to go into them. I have made them with all the oil and half oil and hald applesauce -- both are great, can't really tell a difference.
These were fantastic muffins! I love zucchini bread and wanted something that could hold up better than sliced bread. I followed the recipe exactly except to add a bit more chocolate chips. If you try this recipe, please keep in mind that you can taste zucchini, it is not like a regular choc. chip muffin! My kids did notice a difference, but I will keep trying to persuade them to eat! I plan on making this over and over again!
