Streusel-Topped Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins
These Streusel-Topped Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins will pack plenty of texture and nutrition in the eating, so you can feel better about serving this muffin to your kids and family as a snack, part of lunch, or late night treat. It can serve pretty well as a breakfast on the go, too, and you can bump it up by substituting or adding things that you know are good for your family to eat. This recipe suggests adding nuts, either pecan or walnuts, to enrich the recipe. That will make it a great way to start the day.
This is a super, from scratch, recipe that can handle plenty of substitutions in terms of the nuts or chips. You could add cranberries and walnuts instead of chocolate chips. Or try dried cherries and pecans. Keep the zucchini in both substitutions to ensure a moist result. Or just enjoy the chocolate, either alone or with nuts. The streusel uses oats, a good source of fiber. Oats will also help to fill you up, and means the muffins will stick to your ribs for awhile after you have eaten them. Streusel is a lovely topping that can work on a lot of different dishes, adding great texture and a rich and slightly sweet flavor. It has a lot less sugar in it than frosting, but still gives a sense of a special topping so you feel satisfied when you eat it.
This is a solid go to recipe that you can keep book marked for whenever you want to use up all that garden zucchini. You could even make a day of it, with friends, and get together and bake up a ton of muffins and bread loaves. There is always enough zucchini to go around.
