Double Chocolate Zucchini & Walnut Muffins

double chocolate zucchini and walnut muffin recipe
My new favorite muffin

light, moist and delicious – you’d never know you were eating your fruit and veggies while completely satisfying my chocolate cravings!

Ingredients:

  •  1 cup mashed banana
  • 1.5 cups grated zucchini (water pressed out)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.75 cups AP flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking power
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  1. Grate the zucchini (It took me 2 smallish zucchinis to make 1.5 cups) and then press the water out of it using paper towels. You do not want it wet – it will make the muffins soggy.
  2. Blend together the wet ingredients – zucchini, banana, applesauce, butter, egg & vanilla and make sure the bananas are well mashed and integrated.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and blend well.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips and toasted walnuts.
  6. Scope mixture into well buttered muffin tins – I made 6 large muffins, it will also make 12 regular sized muffins.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes (for 6 large) 20-25 minutes (for 12 regular)

Cool and Enjoy!
