These Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are loaded with fresh shredded zucchini, and are the perfect balance between chocolate and spice.
I love making these muffins with fresh zucchini from the garden, found in abundance during the summer and fall months. What better way to utilize zucchini than mixing it with chocolate to create a tasty Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffin?!
There are a few simple steps to follow when preparing the zucchini for this recipe. First, scrub the zucchini clean to remove any dirt, I personally use a vegetable scrubber. Slice the zucchini horizontally in half, then remove any seeds. Next, slice the zucchini vertically, cutting the zucchini small enough to fit within a food processor, or to be shredded by a cheese grater.
Place the shredded zucchini into a colander, pressing down with a clean wash rag to squeeze some water out. However, don’t squeeze all the water out as the fluids in the zucchini help to keep the muffins moist.
Store the muffins in an airtight container. You may freeze the muffins for up to three months.
If you have an abundance of zucchini I recommend you bake some off these muffins..extra chocolate goodness and as one member stated “yum!”
