I made this as well last night and they were a hit. I had some frozen zuchinni left over and needed some recipes to use it up with. This one is great because it sneaks in some sort of veggie into a chocolate muffin.

I really hope that I get enough zukes to freeze from my garden because this is my all-time fave muffin!

And you're right, veggie in a muffin-with chocolate to beat all!-Blesses a Mom's heart in more ways than one!!! Hope your boys liked 'em as much as mine!
