Banana zucci chunky muffins

                                           Chunky muffins!

Chunky, nutty, sweet, healthy, vegan muffins, and they freeze well too! These muffins are definitely a favorite mix of vegetables and fruits. Vegetables in muffins you say? What kind of gross vegan trick is that? The truth is bananas and zucchini are the perfect pair. Zucchinis light crunchy taste adds an extra chunk and nutrition while the banana’s sweet flavor takes care of the rest. If you have an especially ravaging sweet tooth mini chocolate chips are a wonderful addition.

Check it out for a great snack, breakfast or dessert!
