Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins- Taste of Home Tuesday!

It's getting to be that time of year when everyone with a garden is overflowing with zucchini. I do not have a green thumb, but I know that I never leave the farm without 6 to 8 good sized zucchini in my shopping bag.   While I do enjoy some savory dishes made with zucchini, what really goes over best here is baked goods.

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website, in a feature called 25 Ways to Use Zucchini. I believe I saved almost all of them to my recipe box!  I liked it because I had all the ingredients on hand.  I omitted the nuts due to allergies.  I had regular sized semi-sweet chips on hand, and I used a heaping half cup.   They would also be great with raisins, or cinnamon chips.   I definitely recommend doubling the batch and freezing some, and they make a great on-the-go breakfast or snack.   Thank you so much to Janet D for sharing her recipe!
