Every summer aren’t we all trying to figure out what to do with all the zucchini growing in our gardens?! Or maybe you have a friend or neighbor who keeps gifting the git of zucchini that just keeps on giving. Well, I thought why not make Oatmeal Zucchini Chocolate Bread and Zucchini Muffins and do a taste test to see which one my peeps prefer, the muffins were the winner. They were my favorite, but I do this all for you so I was glad they were a hit. I think this is the third batch I have made, the first batch was to test out, the second batch we took camping and this third batch is for my cute friend Ashton who just had a baby. They are perfect for any occasion and they are great to grab on the run. Maybe you could make these for whom ever keeps bringing these beauties to your door, ENJOY!
