Chocolate Zucchini Muffin Recipe

If being an easy recipe is not enough reason for you to make this muffin, how about if I tell you that this muffin taste so good, like seriously good! It’s soft, moist, loaded with chocolates and the most important thing, you wouldn’t be able to taste the zucchini in it at all. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, a ghost ingredient.

Chocolate Chips Zucchini Muffins Recipe

I have to admit that I was one of those people who raised my eyebrows the first time I saw a bake product recipe that uses zucchini. In my mind, vegetable like zucchini does not mix with bake products. I like to eat it with savory meals, or in a salad or pasta but not in bread, cake of muffins. That was a long time ago, I am a change woman now and a lover of zucchini in bake goodies. I am glad I convinced myself to try making it because I ended up liking it.

Moist Chocolate Chips Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini even on its raw form, or when used in pasta or salad doesn’t have any taste unless you season it. It does have a lot of water and no taste what so ever, it’s just like cucumber. This is why mixing it in bake products doesn’t affect the taste, what it gave the muffin is additional moisture, making the muffin moist, soft and compact just a good muffin should be.
