Pumpkin Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread and Muffins

These were tasty and a great use of zucchini and pumpkin.


Pumpkin Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread and Muffins

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tsp salt

3 tsp baking powder

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

2 sticks of butter, softened

4 eggs

1 cup milk

1 tbsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups grated zucchini

1 15oz can of pureed pure pumpkin


Preheat the oven to 350F

Cream butter, and add eggs one at a time.   Add milk and beat.    Add in pumpkin and zucchini.

In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.  

Add to wet ingredients, being sure not to over mix.

Pour mixture into 2 greased bread pans, or into greased muffin pans.   

Bake  for 45-60 minutes for loaves and 25-35 minutes for muffins (or until toothpick comes out clean.



*I felt this recipe could use a little extra spices…. maybe a smudge more cloves and cinnamon, but otherwise very tasty.
