Moist and hearty muffins packed with protein and other goodness. The zucchini makes these nice and moist without changing the flavor. There are lots of variations you can make. The rolled oats add chewiness and are a good source of protein and fiber, but you can replace with any kind of flour. I chose to use honey and brown sugar instead of refined white sugar. My protein powder was quite sweet, so these were as sweet as brownies. You could also use regular sized chocolate chips, but I like how the mini ones distribute the chocolate flavor more.

  6. Scoop 1/3 batter per muffin into muffin tin.
