Zucchini Chocolate Muffins


Author Notes: I had been curious about baking with different kinds of flour as well as finding a good recipe that made use of the massive amounts of zucchini available at my local farmer's market -- while the recipe is gluten-free, you should know that the muffins will not taste like they are healthy! timmytwinkle

Serves: 12-18 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1.5 cups grated zucchini (do not pack when measuring)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. In a medium bowl, combine these dry ingredients: coconut flour, tapioca flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, agave nectar, coconut oil, and zucchini. Make sure to break apart the coconut oil as much as possible.
  4. Gradually add in the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Mix thoroughly
  5. Using a stick-free muffin pan, spoon batter into pan where muffins are about two-thirds of the way full.
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for approximately 45 minutes. Make sure to cover the muffins with foil midway through so they do not over-brown.
  7. Cool and serve.

I will definitely try this one....my garden is beginning to produce zucchini the size of large babies! I love chocolate.

Is it possible to alter this recipe to eliminate the zucchini and use something a little bit more fruity (raspberries, pineapple)? I do like the idea of a chocolate muffin, but perhaps it would be best as a pancake (chocolate chips though, obviously.) Let me know how it works, Thanks.
