Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

So on our quest to a healthier lifestyle (by the way, Bob has lost 25 pounds and I have lost 8!  woo hoo!), I decided that I need to try some healthier baked goods for Bob and me (kids, neighbors and friends will still get the full sugar versions) so last night I googled “low fat zucchini chocolate chip muffins” and this recipe came up from the website http://www.fitness.com.  I have to say that they aren’t bad for low fat, each muffin only has 78 calories so not a bad addition to breakfast.

1/3 cup sugar

1 cup whole wheat flour (didn’t have any yet so just used regular)

1 cup quick oats

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup shredded zucchini (I’ve said it before but here it is again, I run mine through the food processor until it is almost liquid)

2 tablespoons oil

1 egg, beaten

3/4 cup skim milk

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 400.  Line muffin tin with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.

2  In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.

3  In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, oil, egg and milk.

4  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until moist.

5  Add chocolate chips.

6  Scoop batter into muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes.
