(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

My cousin gave me these GIGANTIC zucchinis:

She also told me about this recipe on allrecipes.com: Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins
So I decided to make them with a few alterations.
1. Splenda instead of sugar.
2. Apple sauce instead of oil.

The first batch? It tasted like Splenda.  Yuck!  So I left them for my husband to eat, which he didn't, and eventually threw them out.  Today I started over.  I used real sugar and still used apple sauce, but only 1/8 of a cup per batch (I had actually doubled the recipe so it was 1/4 cup of oil and 1 1/4 cups of apple sauce).

 Don't they look yummy?

Those do look good--I'll have to try them.

I agree with you on the Splenda. I really only use splenda on cereal or in tea or something like that. I find that when I bake or cook with it, it leaves a bitter taste.
