I’m not a HUGE Zucchini fan, but I do love to add it to tasty desserts and these muffins are no different. I mean, then HAVE to be healthy, right?! There’s Zucchini in them! Nevermind the “double chocolate” aspect of it. :) Seriously though, these are so tasty and yummy that your kids will be asking for more! Enjoy these for breakfast or even dessert! :)
