There aren’t many things in life I like better than chocolate, and my kiddos agree with me. That’s why these sneaky Chocolate Zucchini Banana muffins are such a great recipe for our family! Not only are they sweet enough that the kids think they’re getting dessert, I love that they a packed with the sweetness of bananas and all the goodness of zucchini as well! Fruits, veggies, and chocolate all in one grab-on-the-go package!
These muffins are SO easy to make. Just like my favorite Banana Bread recipe, you can stir it all together by hand in one big bowl for easy cleanup! They are a great way to use over-ripe bananas and all that zucchini the summer garden brings.
