Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Adapted from In Erika’s Kitchen
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup dark cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups zucchini, grated
⅓ cup applesauce
2 cups white wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, oil, cocoa powder and vanilla.
Mix in the zucchini and applesauce.
In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Gently mix with a rubber spatula, being careful not to mix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Fill muffin cups about ¾ full.
Bake about 18 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven until the muffins spring back when touched or a toothpick comes out clean (about 10 minutes for mini muffins).
Remove the muffins from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
