I woke up a few weeks ago absolutely craving chocolate. My first thought was, “I need chocolate muffins with chocolate chips.” After some 8am internet-scouring, I went the zucchini route rather than put myself into a chocolate coma. Boy am I glad I did! If you haven’t tried zucchini bread yet, you must! I did not expect such deliciousness and am really kicking myself for putting it off for so long.

Although I’m a big fan of zucchini, I swear these muffins taste nothing like vegetables! The bread is rich, and the cinnamon adds an intense flavor. And the little bit of chocolate is wonderful! I know they sound disgusting, but trust me here.

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins from Allrecipes.com

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup milk
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup shredded zucchini
¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup chopped walnuts

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Combine the egg, oil, milk, lemon juice and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in zucchini, chocolate chips and walnuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.


  1. Omgosh! I love these. I’ve made them without chocolate before and I loooove them. Good choice. : )
