These homemade chocolate zucchini muffins are as delicious as they are healthy and oh, so easy to make. I also love that my children don’t realize they even have veggies in them and always ask for seconds. They think they are brownie muffins so it’s a win-win for me.

Oh! I have to try these, I would cut down on the sugar and maybe put in some date syrup instead.

These muffins did not turn out as the photo shows. Followed recipe exact. The batter seemed very thick going in. I'm wondering if maybe the recipe should include a vegetable oil. The muffins turned out chunky and did not taste very good. Texture was off and no moisture. Super unsatisfied with this recipe.

@MagD, same here. They look nothing like the picture. Very disappointed

I was expecting pretty chocolatey- they were! Looked a little more chunky than pic but not by much. This is what I had hoped for and my very picky eater seemed to really like them. I really liked them so I consider this an all around WIN! Thanks for the recipe

These didn’t come out well. I thought they would be nice and moist but they were dry and just not good.

Mine too! Followed the recipe exactly and they are way too cocoa-y and look horrible. Wondering if it was supposed to say 1/4 cup of cocoa....
