Chocolate Chip Muffins with Shredded Zucchini and Apple
Adapted from www.allrecipes.com
Makes 24 mini-muffins along with 3 larger muffins, or 12-14 large muffins
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground flaxseed meal (optional)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 c. vegetable oil (I use Smart Balance)
1/4 c. milk
1 Tbsp lemon juice (1/2 a fresh lemon, juiced)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 medium zucchini, shredded
1 medium apple, shredded
1/2 c. mini semisweet chocolate chips
1. In a bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and flaxseed.
2. Combine the eggs, oil, milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Mix well. Stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in zucchini, apple, and chocolate chips.
3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
I refrigerate these, although they would freeze well too.
