Recipe: Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Wow. Sorry for not posting a whole week. This summer is going by way too fast!

So, yesterday I experimented with some Zucchini-Chocolate Chip muffins, and they turned out pretty darn tasty! This is a perfect way to use up all that garden and CSA zucchini when you're tired of stir-frying or pickling. I used this recipe to make mini-muffins (about 3 dozen!), but you could make regular size ones, too. Just adjust the cooking time by about 10 minutes. Oh, and these work great to freeze and pull out for later use!
