These Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are made with whole wheat flour and have less sugar than most muffins.
Heads us! This Chocolate Zucchini Muffin recipe was first published in August 2013. Photos updated July 2018. Post text remained unchanged.
These healthy muffins have two things going for them: chocolate and vegetables. Anytime I can combine those two things and have them for breakfast, I think I’m doing pretty well.
My girl Meghan agrees. Well, at least with the chocolate part. She recently declared chocolate her “very favorite food.”
Zucchini, on the other hand, is probably her least favorite vegetable. She’s come a long, long way from Operation: Eat More Vegetables, but zucchini has stayed on her black list. Throw it in a muffin, though, especially a chocolate muffin, and all bets are off. Zucchini gets eaten.
I made two batches of these and stocked up my freezer with muffins for the busy mornings ahead of us. School starts for Meghan tomorrow (kindergarten!) and I feel like summer is abruptly ending, even though technically there are a few weeks left. I’m glad to know we’ll be eating these for a little while even after the summer produce has left us.
They would be delicious served with these Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Asparagus bundles!
