Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
I grew up eating zucchini. I grew to love just about every zucchini dish that my mother and grandmother made. I loved zucchini for dinner and especially loved a fresh piece of zucchini bread. YUM!
My kiddos are not big fans of zucchini. Coaxing them to even try a dish that includes it is definitely a huge task. It became my mission to get them to at least give it a try. So I decided I would make a dessert that they would have absolutely no idea that zucchini was even an ingredient. I succeeded with these Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins.
These muffins are similar to a muffin you would find a bakery. They are over the top moist and flavorful. The double dose of chocolate really disguised the zucchini. These kids had no idea. I let them know after the entire batch was completely devoured. Like I guessed, they were amazed that there was zucchini in these bites of deliciousness.
If you have some leftover zucchini, I highly suggest making these. They will be perfect for a grab and go breakfast or even evening dessert.
