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.
