A Healthy Choice...

So I found this recipe awhile back and have now made it a couple of times.

Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or regular..I've tried both)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grate zucchini (either by hand or using a food processor), then squeeze grated zucchini to remove some of the water. Measure 1 1/2 cups zucchini and mix with mashed bananas.

In a medium sized bowl, beat egg and honey. Stir in the grated zucchini mixture, then the oil. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder and salt over the top of this and mix in.

Add whole wheat flour and cinnamon to the zucchini mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in chopped pecans and chocolate chips.

Spray muffin pan or individual muffin cups with nonstick spray then divide batter evenly among cups to make 12 muffins. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Happy Friday! Enjoy!
