Author Notes

Without sugar, vegan (if you use vegetable milk), with surprising addition of vegetables. They are moist, sweet, veeery chocolate with deliciously crunchy nuts inside. An absolute guilt-free dessert that you can eat without end and without any pangs of guilt. Since I made them they are my favorite muffins – chocolate zucchini – carrot muffins with blueberries. —Flymetothespoon
