Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Once you try these decadent Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, you will see why we love them so much. They are amazing!
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?
Zucchini chocolate chip muffins are delicious and easy!
You probably have everything you need at home to make these muffins today – no fancy ingredients required. Plus, they are super moist and your family never has to know about our secret ingredient…. a vegetable. 🙂
Make sure you have a good pan to make double chocolate zucchini muffins.
If you don’t already have a set, we love this silicone muffin pan, I highly suggest them. I love baking in mine (and they are still holding up after years of use).
You can use what you prefer but just make sure you have a good pan. I have found a good pan is the start to a good recipe.
I have the Rachael Ray muffin pans here. There are several other options of muffin pans and many are on sale!
Another idea is to use a mini-muffin pan. Mini muffins are fun to eat and another tasty option for breakfast or brunch. Maybe even a snack.
Keep in mind the smaller size will take less time to cook and the total cooking time will need to be adjusted. They are faster to cook and easier to eat.

How to make chocolate zucchini muffins:
First, preheat the oven and spray the muffin pans with cooking spray.
Next, mix together the dry ingredients that include flour through salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Now it is time to combine the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla until mixed together.
Add in the grated zucchini and mix well.
Gradually add the dry ingredients until everything is mixed together thoroughly.
Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Do you peel zucchini before shredding?
No need to peel the zucchini first. Just wash and shred. Easy!
How do you store zucchini muffins?
I like to use an air tight storage container to keep the muffins in. This is a simple way to store them and keeps them fresh.
How to freeze chocolate zucchini muffins:
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.
These will keep for months but we eat them much faster. You can then pull just one or 2 out if you want and reheat them in the microwave for a delicious and easy breakfast idea.
This is a great recipe to freeze if you have guests coming. You can have homemade muffins to serve.
We also like to freeze the muffins and take them when we are traveling. They are perfect for road trips, vacation and more.

The savings adds up and they are so easy to make and freeze. You will love having them on hand for quick meals. Save time and money!
It is so easy to double or even triple this recipe to make some specifically for the freezer. We do this all the time and having great food in the freezer helps to keep our expenses down.
We are less tempted to grab meals and snacks on the go if we have such easy and delicious food in the freezer. This is the perfect grab and go idea!

I typically always have the ingredients on hand. You can even freeze zucchini in the summer when it is plentiful or your garden is overflowing. It is so handy for muffins during the year.
Pro tip- To make baking easier, I always use baking scoops. I love these! I use the largest baking scoop for muffins and cupcakes.
I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking. I bought the 3 pack and used the smallest of the 3 scoops for cookies and the larger ones for muffins.
The other sizes are perfect for recipes such as meatballs and more. Trust me, they will get lots of use and are well worth the small investment.
We have even used an ice cream scoop but I do prefer using cookie scoops. Get a set today and you will not regret it!
