Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

I found this awesome chocolate chip zucchini bread on Pinterest, and had to try it. Of course, I had to make some adjustments as well.

Here is my modified recipe – turned it into muffins (I know, you’re shocked, but muffins are so much easier to serve to two kids in the morning than bread). The kids LOVED these. They have requested them several times since we ran out. I didn’t tell them about the squash 🙂

1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup plain non-fat yogurt
1 to 1-1/4 cups yellow squash (or zucchini), shredded
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2. Beat together eggs, sugar, applesauce and yogurt
3. Add squash and remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips), mix well.
4. Fold in chocolate chips
5. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
6. Pour batter into muffin tins. I got 12 muffins from the above amounts.
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
