Oil-Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini bread is a common American treat. However, if you think about it, it’s a weird idea. Green vegetables and bakery goods are an unlikely pairing. Whoever first added this green squash to sweet, cakelike bread was a strange and creative genius. It is a glorious combination and a great way to sneak some nutrients into a healthy breakfast. Most zucchini breads negate the benefits of the vegetable by loading it with unhealthy ingredients like refined flours and sugar. This healthy recipe maintains zucchini bread’s delicious charm—without the guilt! Enjoy these muffins as part of a healthy meal or snack.
