Zucchini season is here now because my Pinterest feed told me so. I even made a board specialized in all things zucchini (shameless plug so you can adhere to me!).
If you’re thinking that you would by no means put zucchini inside a baked good, it is time to escape your safe place because these muffins are MIND-BLOWING and filled with chocolate love with no zucchini taste.
I love when vegetables can taste like chocolate, not?
After all, remember my skinny banana chocolate chip zucchini muffins from last summer? Probably one of the best muffins on my blog page.
I say that on the subject of every muffin We put on this website though, so think what you would.
I spent half of the weekend perfecting this recipe. Seriously, I believe I produced these muffins four moments. During one attempt, I attempted to insert avocado into the cooking equation, nonetheless it didn’t work as well as I hoped. It’s not the fact that muffins weren’t good with avocado, they just weren’t fluffy; I opted to use a bit of coconut oil rather.
Now you would think that the common zucchini bread would be healthy, but most dishes call for more than a cup of sugar with least a 1/2 glass of essential oil. I’m usually not found of baking with lots of sugars or fat (unless it comes to cookies), therefore i thought I’d try my better to make healthy delicious chocolate zucchini muffins that still taste amazing.
Applesauce instead of lots of essential oil. Keeps the muffins moist without adding lots of calories. In the end we have to save some for the delicious chocolate chips.
Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Dairy 30 calories in a glass? I’m cool with this. And it helps to maintain these muffins dairy free.
Whole wheat pastry flour. Probably the best wheat flour available. You can’t also show these muffins are whole-grain!
Honey instead of sugar. Officially honey is sugars, but it’s not a refined sugars plus it also helps to keep these muffins soft.
Zucchini. Of course, this veggie provides an insanely amount of moisture towards the muffins. They’re just SO good you guys!
These chocolate zucchini muffins would be perfect for breakfast, an afternoon treat, or even dessert. You can also bake these as bars or like a loaf of bread, but of course you will have to adjust baking occasions.
I understand you guys are muffin lovers, if you help to make these, snap a photo and tag #ambitiouskitchen about Instagram. I’m getting excited about viewing the photos!
Have an excellent week! xo
1 1/4 cup whole wheat grains pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cooking soda
1/3 glass honey or agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (you can even use greek yogurt!)

1/2 cup regular or mini delicious chocolate chips
Preaheat oven to 350 degrees F. Range 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners and generously aerosol inside of liners with nonstick cooking spray.

In a moderate bowl, whisk jointly flour, cocoa powder, baking soda pop, and salt; set aside.
In the plate of a power mixer, add coconut oil, honey, vanilla, egg and egg white; mix on medium-low until smooth and well combined. Add in zucchini, applesauce, and almond milk; mix again. Gradually add in dried out ingredients and combine until just combined. Gently collapse in chocolate potato chips.
Evenly divide batter into prepared liners. Bake 22-25 moments or until toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean. After 5 minutes, remove muffins and transfer to cable rack to complete cooling. Enjoy!
To help keep muffins dairy totally free, use dairy totally free chocolate chips.
I love adding a few extra chocolate chips (2-3) on top of each muffin before cooking to make them look fairly, but it’s your decision!
I simply stumbled on your blog today and I’m therefore glad I did! Plenty of great content. Quick question, is it better to melt the coconut oil before blending it pigs feet in crock pot with the honey, vanilla, and egg?
Let me know what you think!
They are really yummy! How do you adjust cooking time and energy to make mini muffins?”
Also, I’ve made these with cow’s milk for friends with nut allergies and it’s still yummy.
