Chocolate Chip Zucchini & Apple Sauce Muffins Recipe

With all the zucchini from our garden I will be making a lot of breads and muffins this year!  I like this recipe because it only has half the oil of most recipes and the apple sauce keeps them nice and moist!

Wet Ingredients 

  • 1/2  cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1  3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (or lemon)
Dry Ingredients 
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
Add at the very end
  • 2 cup finely grated Zucchini
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, cream the wet ingredients with a mixer till smooth (1-2 minutes).  Sift in dry ingredients, blend thoroughly.  Then stir in zucchini and chocolate chips by hand.  Spoon batter into muffin tins (with liners) fill 2/3 of the way full. Makes 24 muffins. Bake at 350 for 20-24 minutes.
