Chocolate Zucchini Bread/Muffins

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet, although dark would be good too!)
  1. In a mixer, combine your oil, applesauce, sugars and vanilla. Mix in your eggs and shredded zucchini. In a separate bowl, sift together your flours, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly add this dry mixture into your wet mixture. Beat until combined. Mix in your chocolate chips.
  2. Scrape your batter into 2 greased 9x5x3 loaf pans, and bake at 350 degrees for 50-65 minutes, or until done. For muffins, fill muffin papers to the top and bake 15-20 minutes. Makes 18 muffins. Eat and moan.  For extra moaning, try topping with peanut butter.  Oh my...


  1. If you are like me and crave chocolate every second of the day, you MUST make these! I've started referring to them as "crack muffins." Delicious!

  2. Made these last night...I just asked my husband to hide them so I don't eat every single one. A.MAZ.ING!!!!!!!!!
