Delicious double chocolate zucchini muffins are the perfect breakfast or dessert! Or have it for both!! (My recommendation).
The great question this time of year always seems to be what to do with all that zucchini. I ride a select fine line with the kids on this one. Should they find that there is zucchini in ANYTHING I'm cooking, meal time immediately stops.
And let's just be realistic. With my genes, and all the sugar cravings I had with each of them while pregnant it's not like they weren't doomed to a life of making sure any yucky vegetable I require them to eat is met with an equally sweet dessert for balance.
Remember, it's all about the balance.
But I don't have to feel too guilty about serving them up some of these muffins in the morning before they head out to school. I usually make up a batch and freeze them for ease on busy school mornings. I pull them out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw on the counter hoping with fingers crossed that the dog doesn't have a midnight snack craving for chocolate. (Kidding, they are out of her way but that dog has a sweet tooth that rivals mine).
