Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins



While looking for a muffin recipe, I came across the cutest blog http://timbercreekfarmer.com.  Their recipe was for banana muffins. I adapted it below to include zucchini and whole wheat flour.  Please visit their blog for the recipe for the banana muffins.  It is really good.

Zucchini Muffins

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1  tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
3 cups shredded zucchini
1/4 cup milk

Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl.  In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and sugar together.  Add the egg and milk.  Mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and the zucchini, alternately to the butter and sugar.  Mix until combined.  Do not overmix.

Grease muffin tin or add cupcake liners.  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

Bake muffins in a preheated 350 F oven for 15 to 18 minutes until the center is baked when tested with a toothpick.

Cool on a baking rack.
