Very Healthy Zucchini Chocolate Muffins
These muffins should cool completely before you eat them otherwise you'll really taste the zucchini, unless you like that.

1/3 cup butter, melted (could substitute oil)
1/3 cup sour cream
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

1.5 cups flour (I use a combination of whole wheat and all purpose)
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 wheat germ
1 tsp each BP/BS
1/2 tsp each cinnamon/salt
1.5 cups zukes, shredded
1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can use raisins, nuts or cranberries)

Oven at 375, greased or lined muffin pan. Makes about 12.
Mix the first 5 ingrediants (cream). Combine the dry and add to the wet. Mix in zuke and chocolate chips. Spoon into muffin pan (about 1/3 cup each) and bake, 21 minutes at high altitude, slightly less lower down.

These are the most wonderful creation. No more paper liners and they work like a charm. Only thing you need to do is let them cool in the silicone liners before you take them out. I think the sweatiness created by this causes the muffins to just fall right out. I found them at Safeway for about $12.
