Zuchinni Day- August 8th! (aka Sneak some zuchinni onto your neighbour's porch day)

I have a GIANT muffin recipe for you. Lower in sugar and fat then most zuchinni chocolate muffin recipes, and huge to use up whatever is in your garden, or what was on your doorstep this morning!

7 scant cups flour (whole wheat works well)
1 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
salt (a couple pinches)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup oil (I used half coconut, half canola)
6 eggs/egg replacer
3 cups milk of choice
4 tsp vanilla
4 cups shredded zucchini
chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix dry ingredients together. Mix wet in a separate bowl. Then add zucchini to wet ingredients. Add wet to dry, fold in chocolate chips. It will be really dry, but as the zuch bakes, it releases moisture. I'm going to try it with six cups flour next time and see how it goes. Made 24 big muffins and one loaf. Muffins take around 25 minutes, loaf around an hour. Check with a toothpick to see if done.
