Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

I love zucchini bread! At first I was reluctant to try it, but ever since I did it turned into my favorite sweet bread recipe. Today I wanted to try something different, I decided to adapt my zucchini bread recipe to make muffins. I also decided to load my muffins with chocolate chips and they turned out delicious!

This recipe makes a dozen muffins.

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
