Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins with blueberries
Cheryl's Pick for a Healthy Snack
This recipe is pretty awesome! Cheryl made them with her nephew who was wary of the zucchini at first. After he tried them he ate them up and changed his mind! She ended up making a few more batches with him when they were together last summer.
A Healthy Treat
These tasty chocolate chip muffins are packed with health benefitting blueberries and zucchini. Using maple syrup instead of sugar to sweeten them up helps too!
Everyone's favorite summer squash, zucchini contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds. Cooked zucchini is particularly high in vitamin A, though raw zucchini contains slightly less. It's also a good source of potassium, a must if you're practicing hot yoga on the regular.
Popular blueberries are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K. They're also an extremely antioxidant rich food. Antioxidants protect us from free radicals, those pesky unstable molecules that can damage your cells and contribute to aging and disease.
