Zuchinni Chocolate Chip Muffins

Oh How I love muffins. Home-made muffins that is. Don't even think about getting me store bought. (ok ok..i eat store bought but I really appreciate homemade) These are great. They make a great breakfast and a terrific snack and they are healthy for you with the added benefit of zucchini. These would be great for picky kids that won't eat their veggies. I highly recommend making them.

"Whenever I make these muffins, I freeze several. As I'm leaving for work in the morning, I pull one out and enjoy it at the office with a cup of coffee."
