When you want chocolate, you want chocolate. Succumb to your desire with these Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins!
When my boyfriend jokingly asked me the last day that I hadn’t consumed chocolate, I had to think a moment… I’m a choclahoclic. I truthfully answered, I have absolutely no idea!
I was unashamed to say I can’t remember! I have been having chocolate every day for… let’s just say a long time. Dark chocolate is good for you… within reason of course! Sometimes I may just have a couple squares for dessert, or other days I’ll make myself treats, like the glorious recipe below. But looking forward to a square of dark chocolate every night isn’t a crime 🙂
And why not sneak in some undetected healthiness?! Zucchini is perfect and blends in sneakily. It’s taste is easy to override with cocoa. Seriously, I had my unenlightened reliable taste testers try the muffins. They had no idea until I told them there was zucchini in it. You can definitely detect something different than all the usual chocolate muffins, but trust me, it doesn’t disappoint.
You can even get by with a little less honey, but I wanted to be satisfied so added a bit more than was probably necessary. Oops.
Dark Chocolate Zucchini Muffin Ingredients:
1 Cup Zucchini
1 Cup Nut Butter
1/2 Cup Raw Honey
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
The consistency should be similar to normal batters. However, if it is a little more liquidy, don’t worry. This was finger licking worthy too!
I made some with coconut and some without because some people don’t like coconut. But I love it! The coconut texture really added some fun and unexpectedness!
Dark Chocolate Zucchini Muffin Directions:
Chop the zucchinis and blend in the blender until a liquid consistency. Stir all the ingredients together and pour in the zucchinis. Simple as that.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Sprinkle on some coconut on top for presentation.
A delicious chocolate baked good with a lot of protein, no sugar, no gluten, and serving of veggies?! That’s a win-win! Chocolate for all!
