Looking for a way to sneak more vegetables into your kids’ diet? (Or your own?) These chocolate chip zucchini muffins do the trick! They’re lower in sugar and packed with shredded zucchini, oats, and whole wheat flour, meaning they’ll be more satisfying and energizing than your standard, sugar-filled muffin. You can feel better knowing your kids are getting some vitamins in and liking it!

Even better yet, the recipe can be made without dirtying a bunch of dishes. Pull out two bowls and a spatula, and you’re ready to roll. Because the muffins are made with pantry staples, they’re easy to whip up every couple of weeks to have on hand and eat for breakfast or an after-school snacks on-the-go.

The recipe makes two dozen larger muffins that are perfectly portioned, thanks to Home & Kind food scoops! Use the largest sized food scoop to get equal portions and ensure the muffins all bake evenly. No more guesswork as you’re scooping the muffin batter!

Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

  • Don’t have whole wheat flour on hand? You can definitely use white flour instead!
  • Adding chocolate chips to the top of the muffin batter before baking gives the muffins a more professional look.
  • Feel free to skip the chocolate chips all together if you want to go the healthier route.
  • Substitute apple sauce instead of vegetable oil to add even more nutrients to these muffins.
  • These muffins freeze well. Store one dozen in the freezer, then pull them out when you’re running low.
