The thought of zucchini breads and muffins always worried me. Why would you want a bread that tasted like zucchini? I like zucchini but that just sounded too weird. Well, after pondering this for several years and then opening my email to see this recipe in my inbox from Sweet Peas Kitchen I decided it was finally time to give it a try.
My in-laws were visiting and I like to have homemade treats when they are here. They like chocolate quite a bit so I thought they would enjoy these. The zucchini was an added bonus as they are healthy eaters (not that I’m claiming these muffins are healthy but the zucchini helps, right?).
I couldn’t even tell there was zucchini in these muffins! It just gave a nice, moist texture that was really delicious. I didn’t tell Joel that these were zucchini muffins because he most likely would have stuck his nose up at them. I also enjoy tricking him into eating things that are better for him (replacing ground beef with ground turkey in chili for example). He’s good practice for when Noah is older and probably pickier than he is now.
