Two for one: Zucchini Oat Muffins and Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This recipe makes two delicious and nutritious snacks, and is so easy.  I made everything in the blender (easy cleanup!) and used half the batter for the zucchini muffins, added some unsweetened cocoa powder and the rest of the batter was transformed into chocolate zucchini bread.  The added hemp seeds and teff give this recipe an awesome nutritional boost.
