About the recipe

• Vegetable oil • Sugar • Light brown sugar • eggs • Vanilla extract • All-purpose flour • Cocoa powder • Cinnamon • Salt • Baking soda • Baking powder • Grated zucchini  • Chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two muffin tins with cupcake liners. If you only have one muffin pan, prepare it again after the first batch has finished baking.

Step 1

Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large bowl with a hand mixer), combine the wet ingredients: oil, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt baking soda baking powder. Mix well. 

Step 3

Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium-low speed until just combined. Fold in the grated zucchini or shredded zucchini and chocolate chips.

Step 4

Divide the muffin batter between the prepared muffins cups. The batter will be thick and the cups should be 3/4 of the way full.

Step 5

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean. 

Step 6

Serve warm!
