Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins have became one of my favourites. They are moist, crunchy from the walnuts, chocolaty from the choco-chips and filled with healthy vegetable – so slightly green.

What a great Mother’s Day treat. Healthy and tasty!! – and a breeze to make.

I’m sold on vegetable muffins… what a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies.

About everyvariety

I find that being aware of looking for opportunities to enjoy life through as many senses as possible creates strong impressions of pleasure that enhance life's experiences. As with any other creation, there are many aspects to making an enjoyable experience. There should be memorable stimulation caused by texture, smell, color, taste, and visual presentation. This blog follows my journey as I learn to create, through following other's recipes, adapting recipes and creating my own. My love for all cooking, but mostly baking, comes from the joy I feel when sharing what I make with others and the satisfaction of a job well done. I am not naturally gifted when it comes to cooking but I find the experience meditative and creative, thus mentally relaxing. Please join me in my quest for making eating a beautiful experience.
