Dark Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

These Dark Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are perfect for brunch! Rich and moist zucchini muffins made with dark chocolate.

The very first time that I tried chocolate zucchini muffins was about six months ago and I fell in love! My local produce store used to sell baked goods from a friend and those muffins looked really good. So, I tried one! Ever since then, I have been wanting to make some myself.
I really don’t know why it took me so long to make these because they were heavenly!! I’ve read a lot of different recipes and came up with this one. It rocks! I definitely recommend you try them, even if you are not sure about the zucchini in the muffins.
Please note the different cook times below!! I made big muffins, so if you are making regular sized muffins, adjust baking time accordingly!!

Ingredients:

2 cups of shredded zucchini
3 eggs
4 oz of dark chocolate, melted
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a muffin pan.
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon  and baking soda. Mix and set aside.
3. Beat eggs and sugar together on a medium speed for about a minute.
4. Slowly add oil while the mixer is on.
5. Add shredded zucchini and vanilla extract, keep mixing.
6. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add the dry mixture.
7. Add the melted chocolate and mix until all the ingredients are combined.

8. Divide the batter between the muffin cups and bake for 30-35 minutes.

***Please note that I used a large muffin pan! Check your muffins after 20 minutes, if you are using a regular muffin pan.***

Enjoy!!!

  25. christyisrc says:

    Beautiful!! I love how zucchini just melts into baked products and unsuspecting children eat them right up! And your random vegetable-a-phobic adult.  My kids know I do this but guests, we don’t always tell guests until they “love them”. 

  26. Theresa says:

    Sounds wonderful! I am always looking for ways to use up our overabundance of zucchini in the summer. Thanks for posting, pinned the recipe.

  27. Smallorganizedhome says:
