Vegan Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Vegan Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Let me introduce the most common way I am cooking. I have an idea or too much of something at home waiting to be used up. So, I browse the web for a perfect recipe. I find several and then decide on one. Almost every time I decide that “this time I will be following the recipe to a t”. And almost every time I end up replacing half the ingredients, and changing the cooking time and ratios. This is what happened this time too. The base recipe is here, and I am sure it is delicious, but I have no way of telling for sure. 

My version is definitely delicious and without knowing that the big part of the recipe is zucchini I don’t think anybody would understand. It is also a rather simple recipe that anybody could follow and does not require any cooking skills. And who doesn’t like chocolaty brownie-like muffins that are also relatively healthy? 

Vegan Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Makes 24 tiny muffins


2 cups of grated zucchini (no need to squeeze out the excess water for this recipe)

 ½ cup peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla paste

1 cup oat flour

½ cup almond flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ cup unsweetened cocoa

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup tiny dark chocolate chips

A sprinkle of salt


Preheat the oven to 360F and line the mini muffin pan with liners.

In one bowl mix zucchini, peanut butter, and vanilla paste.

In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients except for chocolate chips.

Then mix the content of the two bowls.

Fill the muffin cups halfway, then add half of the chocolate chips and cover it with the rest of the batter. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.

Bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy and share with friends.
