Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini "Muffins"!

Such a HIT!

Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini "Muffins"!

I have to admit, these didn't rise. I didn't use the baking soda (only powder) and also, there is not a lot of gluten in the recipe to make it rise ... but in their dense goodness they were delicious, and only received rave reviews and cravings for more.... so they could be bars, or biscuits or sconish things but their fruity, chocolatey goodness and I'm headed home to make more in about 3 hours... once I do, I'll add in a picture also.

Preheat oven to 360 degrees.

2 cups Zucchini from 1 large Zucchini (grated/shredded or liquefied by immersion blender, I did the latter)
2 med bananas (over ripened and mashed)
3 large eggs
1 cup brownulated sugar (Easy pouring & storage. Plain brown sugar does the trick too.)
2 tbs vegetable (or grapeseed) oil
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 - 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1-2 tbs baking powder
1/2 tbs baking soda
16 oz chocolate chips

Spray muffin tins (I used liners and then spray). Bake for 25 minutes or until center sets. Let cool. Enjoy.
