Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

These are so good almost half the batch was devoured while they were still warm from the oven! Most of the sweetness comes from the fruit and they are choc-ful of chocolate.

2 medium raw zucchini, pureed
1 cup pureed cooked fruit (I used peach, but pear would work well too)*
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1/4 cup agave syrup or honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2.5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Whisk together wet ingredients in large bowl. Stir together dry ingredients and add to wet. Add chocolate chips while gently folding ingredients until everything comes together. Fill greased muffin cups to the top and bake at 400F for about 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Makes 16 muffins

*To save time, you can use a few jars of baby food if you don't have pureed fruit handy. Canned fruit thrown into the food processor or blender would work in a pinch too.
