Muffin of the Week: Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Hello Friends,

Happy September!!!

Labor Day happened, so that means the muffin of the week is a day late.  Normally, I like the structure of having a schedule and meeting my goals, but when a holiday means adventures with my husband....
...adventures win. 

It was worth it.

Since I made you all wait until Tuesday, I decided to build a recipe that has been much requested!  It involves a lot of chocolate, so I do hope it doesn't disappoint.....

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup milk
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

1 1/2 cups grated zucchini, drained
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and well combined.
  4. Stir in the grated zucchini.
  5. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. *Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips. :)
  7. Fill the prepared muffin tin until the cups are full and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
  8. Cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tin, then remove the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Store the muffins at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

This is one of those recipes where they are even better the next day.  So give them a little patience and they will NOT disappoint.  May they fuel your adventures this week!  

Happy Pilgrimming!
