Zucchini Muffins

In the midst of my crazy summer FULL of healthy baking, I worked with a girl named Lara, now in college, who has been healthy baking for years now! She introduced me to this recipe which she created on her own, and it is absolutely unbelievable. It is so filling and healthy, and you wouldn’t even know it because it tastes soo good! (With the help of plenty of chocolate chips of course). This is my favorite recipe that I have found all summer. Thank you Lara!
