Chocolate Zucchini Muffins – Makes 24
1 1/2 Cups Zucchini; peeled & grated  (I also rolled the shredded zucchini between paper towels to eliminate the excess water.)
1 Large Banana; mashed  
1/4 Cup Oil  
1/4 Cup Cinnamon Apple Sauce   (In lieu of applesauce I peeled and diced an apple, nuked it til mush-able, and mixed in cinnamon.)
2 teaspoons Vanilla  
1 1/4 Cup Honey  
1/2 teaspoon Salt  
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda  
1/3 Cup Cocoa  
2 Cups All Purpose Flour  
1 Bag Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips  
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray or use paper cup cake liners.
Mix together the zucchini, banana, oil, apple sauce, vanilla, and honey. Add the remaining ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Fill the tins about 3/4. Bake the muffins about 25-30 minutes. Let them cool a few minutes before removing the muffins from the tins.

Original recipe is from the BigOven website.
