Sneaky Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

I love the idea of sneaking veggies into foods where you wouldn't normally find them. Like last week with the turkey meatballs and this week with these chocolate muffins. I'm afraid I might be giving Andrew some serious trust issues since I don't tell him there was two cups of zucchini in them until after he finished one. ;)

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup of cocoa
  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, line muffins tins with paper liners. (Recipe makes 20 muffins)

2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla, yogurt/sour cream and zucchini, mix well.

3. Add the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda, mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into muffin tins so they are 3/4 full. Bake for approx 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
