Wholesome, delicious and easy, these zucchini muffins, with chocolate chips thrown in for good measure, are light and fluffy and completely irresistible!

Every year, I join the millions of people racking their brains to figure out something new and fun and exciting to do with the bumper crop of zucchini hanging out in the garden. While I’m researching recipes and over-analyzing the best ways to use the zucchini, they are aggressively growing to epic, baseball bat proportions. There’s no time to waste! Bring on the zucchini recipes.
It’s not as though I don’t love zucchini bread. Or triple chocolate zucchini cookies. Or zucchini boats. Or…all the other delicious zucchini recipes in my back pocket. I love them, I do.
But because I’m me, I always get the itch to find new and improved ways to use up that zucchini every time summer gardening season rolls around. Which, speaking of gardening, I have to tell you that despite all my moaning and groaning over the years about gardening, I am loving my square foot garden/garden boxes. Those cute little raised garden beds (that incidentally were a ton of work to get started) have totally revolutionized how I feel about gardening. As in, things are actually growing (and if you know my past history with gardening, you’ll know this is quite an accomplishment).

Our zucchini plants have decided to be over achievers this year so we have a lot of zucchini, big and small, needing a purpose. Along with our aforementioned zucchini go-to’s, we have a very clear, new favorite zucchini recipe.
Whole grain chocolate chip zucchini muffins!
These muffins are divine. So simple (you don’t even need a special contraption to wring out the zucchini), so light and fluffy, and so delicious – I think they are definitely one of my favorite baked zucchini goods of all time.

I counted, and we’ve made these muffins five times in the last two weeks (I told you we have a lot of zucchini waiting in the wings). The recipe makes an even 12 muffins, which is the perfect afternoon snack size for our family.
We even save a few for Brian when he gets home from work, although it is an exercise in serious self-control for all of us. Except for that time Brian came home to a partial muffin left on the cooling rack. It’s every man for himself around here when it comes to perfect muffins. But, as I like to say, a partial muffin is better than no muffin.
I’ve doubled the recipe, too, when we’ve had friends over to play (DIY slip-n-sliding...
