Chocolate Pudding Zucchini Muffins

These really should be called cupcakes.  Without the whole wheat flour and zucchini, I’m not sure that they have any redeeming qualities… except that they taste awesome.  That counts for something, right?!

All I know is that my 3 year old son asked sweetly “Mom, when you can fix these again?” after his first bite, and my 6 year old drama queen was all “Oh my gosh!  These have zucchini in them?!  No way!”  The almost-2 year old has eaten 57 since I made them 3 days ago…
