Dairy Free Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins

Here's a different version of Zucchini muffins. These Zucchini muffins from We Made That are made with whole wheat, oil and almond milk.  While they still contain quite a bit of sugar, it is less than a traditional muffin.

I put 1/2 c raisins in half the batch and 1/2 c chocolate chips in the other half of the batch.  If you add either one of these things, the cinnamon sugar sprinkle topping is not necessary as the chocolate and/or the raisins add their own sweetness.

Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of these muffins.  At least, I don't think I did.  Truth be told I couldn't tell if the pictures of the muffins were for the Loaded Zucchini muffins, or these!

They are both great recipes!  I made this version for a friend who can't eat dairy.  They got a double thumbs up from him.
