One Bowl Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Sometimes you just need some chocolate! These muffins are a healthier way to satiate that craving. Made with no refined sugar (except a few chocolate chips on top) and the goodness of whole grains, these are a huge hit with the kids. I like to make mini muffins so I can eat 2 or 3 at a time!
