Zucchini-Chocolate Chunk Muffins With Pistachio Streusel

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by SkinnyMinnie

I will have an ABUNDANCE of zucchini this year, so I am looking for different ways to use them. I found this at cookingclub.com and can't wait to try it!! I am guessing on times because I have not made these yet.

I made these because I was really intrigued by the ingredient combination and I happened to have them all on hand. First, the texture of these muffins is amazing. They puff up beautifully and are nice and moist. Second, I really did not care for the chocolate chips. I feel it would have been better without them, though I do love chocolate-just not in muffins. I'm neutral about the pistachio streusel because I felt the pistachio flavor got lost amongst the others.
