Chocolate Chip-Zucchini-Banana Muffins

What is better than a soft, warm, chocolatey muffin on a cold Fall morning? How about a healthy, soft, warm, chocolatey muffin!

My 3 year old loves these muffins! Any way I can get a few more vegetables into her is a win!

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a muffin tin with non-stick spray or cupcake liners. I used 3 different sized muffin tins. mini muffins for the toddler, regular sized for myself and extra large for my husband.

Step 2: In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Step 3: In another bowl, mush the bananas with a fork. Add in the sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir well until fully combined.

Step 4: Slowly add the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Step 5: Shred your zucchini and squeeze most of the moisture out of it using a cheese cloth. *If you have a very large zucchini, remove any seeds prior to grating.

Step 6: Add in the shredded zucchini and stir until incorporated.

Step 7: Add chocolate chips to the batter and stir until evenly combined. *I filled the mini muffin tin with batter before adding the chocolate chips because my daughter doesn’t need chocolate for breakfast…

Step 8: Scoop batter into each muffin tin slot until 1/2 full.

Step 9: Bake for 22-26 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick is removed practically clean. The tops should be golden brown.
