Double Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Muffins

You guys…..these muffins are crazy ridiculous and they have shredded zucchini inside, so the more muffins the merrier right?  Lol!  Fudgy, soft, packed with lots of shredded zucchini and so simple to prepare!

You’ll just need a large mixing bowl and spoon to get started.  Enjoy!

Here’s your line up of ingredients.  Nice and simple.  Use a food processor or cheese grater to shred your zucchini.  I also used the bloc of chocolate from Trader Joe’s and cut it into small chunks.

    Yum! Loving the chocolate drizzle on top… These muffins are definitely being pinned. Trader Joe’s chocolate is the best for baking, isn’t it?

    What size do you shred your zucchini? Does it matter? Looks great!

      Hi Jody,
      I just used a regular size cheese grater to shred. I’d say it was a medium shred. I don’t think it would affect the muffins if the shred size varies.

    Another great recipe, Jenny! My sister gave me three zucchini, which I hate as a vegetable but love in baked goods. Instead of melting the last cup of chips to use as a drizzle, I just added that extra cup of chips to the batter. Delicious!
