Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Growing up my mom always made zucchini bread, it was always really good and we all loved it! This recipe came from her that I'm sure she got from work, but I've adapted it to make it a little healthier and they are still just as good!

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 2/3 cups sugar(actually it was a little less)
3/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 banana, mashed
2 cups packed zucchini, shredded
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350, grease or paper line cupcake pan(s). Mix together all ingredients except 2 tbsp flour and chocolate chips, until well combined. Mix the remaining flour(white flour seems to work best) and chocolate chips, and fold into mix. Place batter into muffin tins. Bake for 10-12 mins for mini muffins or 20 mins for regular sized muffins. They are done when a toothpick comes out clean.

This recipe made 1 dozen regular muffins and 2 dozen mini-muffins. You can also make 2 loaves of bread with this recipe and cook for 50-60 mins or until done.

**I used a banana in place of one egg. The recipe calls for 3 eggs, but I had a very over ripe banana and you can substitute a banana for each egg. You can taste the banana, but its not as strong as a banana bread or muffin. I am trying not to eat them all today...this is delicious served with cream cheese!
