Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1.5 cups grated zucchini (squeeze the extra water out of it)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup pecans
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Grate zucchini (either by hand or using a food processor), then squeeze grated zucchini to remove some of the water. Measure 1 1/2 cups zucchini and mix with the mashed bananas.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat egg and honey. Stir in the grated zucchini, then the oil. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder, and salt over the top of this and mix in.
Add whole wheat flour and cinnamon to the zucchini/banana mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
Spray muffin pan or individual muffin cups with non-stick spray, then divide batter evenly among cups to make 12 muffins. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Bran Appetit! is where I found the recipe and let me tell you they turned out so good that Kodie wanted to make another batch.....and she even added the zucchini.
I loved the fact that it used Whole-wheat flour, and honey. The only thing "bad" for you in them is the chocolate chips and it is only 1/4 cup so it just adds a little sweet chocolate bite.
