  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line a muffin tray with 12 liners and set aside. Grate the zucchini and set aside. Don't squeeze out the liquid.
  • Whisk together all wet ingredients aside from the zucchini.
  • Whisk in the dry ingredients, aside from the chocolate chips, making sure to spoon and level the flour and cocoa.
  • Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tray, filling each pretty close to the top for nice round muffin tops. Add some extra chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, but careful not to over bake! 22 minutes is usually perfect in my oven, but all ovens are different.
  • Let cool in the tray for about 10 minutes, then remove and let finish cooling on a cooling rack.


I have not tested this recipe without eggs, but if you want to make these vegan, I would suggest apple sauce or mashed banana (about 4 tbsp per egg, so 1/2 cup for the recipe) or flax eggs. 
Be sure to used refined coconut oil, not virgin, to prevent any coconut flavor.
