Chocolate Zucchini Muffins


Mom sent me this recipe a few weeks ago but I didn’t have a chance to make it until now – glad I did, they turned out really well!

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (makes 1 dozen regular, 24 mini muffins)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2 1/4 cups shredded zucchini
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of ½ orange
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 ½ cups white flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
11/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat to 375, place muffin liners in muffin tins.

Whisk together the sugar, oil, and vanilla. Whisk in one egg at a time, until smooth, and then add the yogurt. Stir in the lemon and orange zest and the zucchini.

In a separate bowl, combine the flours, cocoa, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix well.

Combine half the dry ingredients with the wet and mix thoroughly, then add the rest of the dry ingredients.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way, and bake 15-20 minutes for full size muffins, and 10-15 minutes for mini muffins.

  1. Yum, that’s one delicious way to eat zucchini. I bet you can’t even tell it’s in there. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday night and I’d love it if you’d come by and link your muffins up.

    Hey it’s Mom – Just commenting to remind your readers that you can add 1/2 – 1 c chocolate chips to the muffins too. And yes, it’s a great way to use up zucchini in August, and to get anybody to eat it.
