The other day, my in-laws gave us a bunch of zucchini from their neighbor’s garden.  I have been wanting to make some chocolate zucchini muffins for a while.  So I set out to make some muffins.  My chocolate zucchini muffins are not only vegan, but they are gluten free as well.  If you like muffins, you may also like my Banana Blueberry Muffins or my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

These muffins not only pack a hidden serving of veggies for the kids, but they are also oil free as well.  This recipe is very easy to make and freezes well too.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

A healthier muffin with a hidden serving of veggies!



  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Mix wet in another bowl.
  • Add wet to dry and mix until combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon batter into lined or greased muffin pans. I use silicone liners that work awesome.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

*** If you use a medium to large sized zucchini, you will need to squeeze out the excess moisture.

  1. These turned out fantastic! Your blog is making it so much easier to go gluten free with my four year old. Thank you so much. As you suggested, I squeezed out the excess water since I had a larger zucchini and we had no texture or baking issues.

  2. Oh how I wanted these to turn out great. I followed the instructions to a “T”- even squeezing out excess zucchini moisture w/ a paper towel. I’m sorry to say, they were borderline terrible. . I ended up cooking them for 40 min, & they were still extremely dense & gooey. The zucchini flavor was so strong, I could hardly taste the chocolate. I normally love all things zucchini & LOVE healthy GF alternatives. If I get brave enough to try these again, I will use only 1 cup zucchini & add 1 cup banana. TY for your blog & the GF recipes! ☺️
