Besides the pounds and pounds of butter in my freezer, I ALWAYS have some kind of muffin. They are so easy to just pop out and zap in the microwave for 30 seconds for a quick breakfast!
These chocolate zucchini muffins are healthier, because they use nonfat greek yogurt and because the shredded zucchini means less refined sugar. You wouldn’t even know it since these chocolate muffins are so rich and taste so decadent! Don’t feel like you have to put extra chocolate chips on top if you’re trying to be reeeeally healthy. (We bow to your will power.) When I know that I’m going to be short on time in the morning, I move a muffin from the freezer to the refrigerator so that I can grab it at a run in the morning. I love that I don’t have to feel uber-guilty about nomming a frozen breakfast, because I’m getting some greens, some eggs, some greek yogurt . . . totally legit, right? Riiiiight.
Believe it or not, of all the recipes on wyldflour, my healthy chocolate zucchini bread has been the very best recipe of them all–or at least–the most popular. That bread remains one of my top five favorite recipes of all time. But muffin form just makes it so much easier!!! (Lazy peeps, unite.) I love the fact that David and I can scarf some chocolate zucchini muffins when they come out of the oven and then toss the rest in the freezer. No waste. No fuss. Breakfast on the go. I plan on making sure I have some of these puppies stashed away for when family comes to stay for David’s graduation. (Eep! 24 days and counting!)
