Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Holy hell these are delicious.

And they use up a bunch of zucchini.

I'll be making several batches of these over the next few weeks.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups grated zucchini
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients (top half of the list).  An a separate larger bowl, mix together the wet ingredients, minus the zucchini.  Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined, then add the zucchini.  This is when you would add the walnuts and chocolate chips if you want.  Pour into a greased muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes.  Now, it makes 12 muffins, but you may want to double the recipe since 12 of these muffins is not enough.

It's kinda more like chocolate cake.  But healthier... because it has vegetables in it.
I'mma go eat one now.

    I made these yesterday for a potluck and they were a big hit! And luckily I followed your advice and doubled the recipe so we could keep some to have around the house this week. Thanks for sharing a yummy summer recipe!
