The Kids Cook Monday - Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins
Back on our zucchini kick! Actually, I had one lonely little zucchini in the crisper drawer. We needed to do something with it and it wasn't enough to be the base of a main dish.
So, for The Kids Cook Monday, Faith made zucchini-chocolate chip muffins, all by herself! My role was handing her the ingredients off the top shelves and putting the tray into the oven (we have double ovens and the top one is too high for her).
She used Nana's base muffin recipe:
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix all ingredients together till smooth.
Add whatever fruit/filler you want and blend in. Spoon into cupcake lined muffin tins.
Bake at 350 about 20-25 minutes until done.
And to that, she added one cup of shredded zucchini (mini food-processor/chopper to grate it fine), and 1 cup of chocolate chips, which yielded 18 normal sized muffins
As for why she's biting to the side of her mouth? One front tooth is missing and the other is very wiggly, biting down is difficult. ;o)
