  • Heat the oven to 350°F and grease a muffin tin.

  • Add the eggs, yogurt, applesauce, and zucchini and stir until combined.
  • Stir ¼ c of the chocolate chips into the batter.

  • Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


*You can substitute the vanilla Greek yogurt for other flavors (I’ve used vanilla, plain, salted caramel, and chocolate); it doesn’t seem to affect the flavor much at all.
*Regular or cinnamon applesauce would work too 
*You can also substitute regular-sized chocolate chips in for the mini’s; I use mini as they disperse better and there’s a chip in each bite!
