CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

INGREDIENTS:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup grated zucchini
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a muffin pan by spraying cavities with non-stick spray or insert muffin liners.
In a large bowl, stir together the flours, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and the cinnamon. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, applesauce, vegetable oil, milk, and the vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the zucchini and the chocolate chips.
Divide the batter evenly among each cavity (use a large cookie scoop). Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let muffins cool. Store leftovers in an air tight container.
