These muffins are fluffy and slightly sweet. This recipe has a small amount of sugar, but by adding the chocolate chips or dried fruits we will get that sweetness that we are looking for to pair with some tea or coffee. If you are someone who likes sweet muffins or if you are not going to add chocolate chips or dried fruit to the mixture, I recommend adding ½ cup to ¾ cup of sugar or honey to make them sweet. When you mix all the ingredients you will notice that this batter is a little bit dense, but it is perfect! Do not add anything else. Let me know if you had them slightly sweet or added the extra sugar!

1 tablespoon chia seeds
⅛ tsp salt
⅓ cup sugar, I used coconut sugar

Mix dry ingredients
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
Stir in the chocolate chips
Fill each muffin tin about halfway full
Bake at 350 for about 10 to 12 minutes.
The best way to tell if your muffins are ready is to insert a wooden toothpick in one of the muffins and if it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, they are ready!
If you are going to serve this muffin to your child who is super picky, I recommend that after grating the zucchini, place it on a board and cut it a little, until it is very small.
