Chocolate Zucchini Banana Bread Muffins

The end of another fabulous stay-cation.

choc muffins (1 of 1)-4

My sister came to visit, and we did so much stuff.  The city you live in is a hidden gem!  Trust me, I found mine.

We went to a haunted walk, mini golf, go a pedicure/manicure, shopping (40% off my favorite store …Roots), took the dogs to the dog park and had our first, hopefully not our last, neighborhood pool party; we even went for high tea.

I had so many plans for new recipes to try out on my sister…. She is not picky at all, but we were so busy, all I managed to whip up was these!

They were a huge hit!  Seriously I don’t have any left… maybe a few that I hid in the freezer.

We also had an incredible s’more cheese cake, which my wonderful step –daughter made for us.  Seriously.. the best cheesecake ever!

So if you don’t have your own fabulous step-daughter to whip up this awesome cheesecake, make these muffins, there not bad!

Chocolate Zucchini Banana Bread Muffins

½ Cup of Cocoa
1 ½ Cup of Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon of Baking Powder
¼ Teaspoon of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
½ Cup of Vegetable Oil
½ Cup of Sugar
½ Cup of Brown Sugar
2 Eggs, Beaten Slightly
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
2 Cups of Shredded Zucchini (About 4 Large) *I used 8 small white zucchini
2 Ripe Bananas
½ Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips

Pre-Heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 18 muffin tins.

Shred zucchini and pat dry with paper towel; I put mine in a strainer and left a paper towel on top. Smash the bananas in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In another large bowl, mix together until combined, white sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, 2 eggs slightly beaten, and vanilla.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until well combined. Fold in zucchini and bananas.  Finely mix in chocolate chips.

Using a large spoon, divide the batter between the 18 muffin tins.

Place in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes clean when inserted in the middle.

Cool on a wire rack.

  2. True success! For the first time I got a recipe for a heathy version chocolate muffin that my daughter ate with delight! Off course she had a few suggestions… it needed icing with sprinkles… Well, she always suggests that anyway… Very fluffy and moist! Thanks.
    By the way… I used brown sugar only and whole wheat flour no problem…
