Recipe by Chef Jen #1
I created this recipe while looking for a zucchini muffin that would be low in WW points. After two failed attempts I came up with these. They are delicious, easy to make,and if I calculated this correctly they are 2 pts each. Nobody will know these are low fat or low sugar. If you wanted to make these more nutritious you could probably use 1/2 wheat flour.

I was really suprised with this recipe! WOW! They turned out great. I did a few modification to satisfy the boyfriend. I follow the recipe to the tee with the following few changes. Since we are both very avid cyclist, he needed a little more substance to them. I subbed the white flour for whole wheat flour, added 1/4 golden raisins, a very small hand full of chopped walnuts, and 2 1/2 tbsp. of mini chocolate chips. Of course, my additions probably added a little more fat (not much) but well worth it in taste. Thank you!
