Have been loving our recent muffin recipes? My family loved the double chocolate muffins and even the delicious applesauce oatmeal muffins. We have a new one for you today that we think you are going to love – Chocolate Zucchini Muffins!
What? Did I say zucchini? Why yes, yes I did. If you have ever baked with zucchini (like zucchini bread) then you know the zucchini takes on the taste of what you are making, so chocolate zucchini muffins taste like… you got it, chocolate! Now have I got your attention?
These chocolate zucchini muffins are delicious and easy and you probably have everything you need at home to make them today – no fancy ingredients required. Plus, they are super moist and your family never has to know about our secret ingredient…. a vegetable. 🙂
If you need more muffin cups, why not invest in some silicone baking cups. I love mine and they really do save you money in the long run. You can see mine in the picture above. I love how easy they come off without breaking the muffins.
You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry and this is a great time to use those extra Zucchini’s that your garden will produce this Summer

To make baking easier, I always use baking scoops. I love these! I use the largest baking scoop for muffins and cupcakes.
They freeze great!
The nice thing about these muffins is that they freeze great. Just place them (after they have cooled) into a freezer bag and freeze. When you are ready to eat, you can microwave for a few seconds for delicious warm muffins. I like to place my frozen muffins in the fridge the night before so they reheat much faster.
