Chocolate Chip Zucchini Honey Muffins

I recently discovered that zucchini can be used in sweet baked goods. ¬†Even though many have been doing that for ages, I never knew that zucchini could be used in breads, muffins, cakes or cookies! When I saw a couple of blog posts on such recipes, I did a little research and found that zucchini, when used in sweet baked goods, increases the moistness of the product while its taste remains pretty concealed. Sounds great isn’t it?

So I bought a couple of zucchini and decided to try baking something. My husband was less than thrilled at the thought of a zucchini muffin. “Zucchini muffin?! That’s so weird!!” was his reaction. Maybe yours too…. but hang on there. He changed his mind after tasting the muffin and I believe you would too.

Salted Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

A couple of years ago, I picked up the sweet and salty bug. The bug that made me love all things that were a combination of sweet and salty – salted caramel, world peace cookies and even McDonald’s McGriddle Sausage and Egg muffins. Yes I am not kidding, even that. It is a really persistent bug because years later, I still love things sweet and salty.

About a week ago I was thinking of baking cookies and was combing through a couple of recipes, thinking of what to bake. I came across Amanda’s Brown Butter Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies and thought they were perfect. I wanted a cookie that was less sweet however, so I decided to omit the caramel this time round, increase the chocolate chips and add in cornstarch to make the cookies chewy. Yes – did you know that adding cornstarch to your cookie batter makes your cookies chewy in the middle? Try it. It works.
