Directions

  1. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners and generously spray inside of liners with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Squeeze shredded zucchini of excess water with a paper towel. This is important, so don’t forget!

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and egg whites; mix on medium-low until smooth and well combined. Add in zucchini, applesauce, and almond milk; mix again. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

  4. Evenly divide batter into prepared liners. Bake 22-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean. After 5 minutes, remove muffins and transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To keep muffins dairy free, use dairy free chocolate chips.
  • I love adding a few extra chocolate chips (2-3) on top of each muffin before baking to make them look pretty, but it's up to you!
