(originally made 7/2010)
Jake and I picked up zucchini at the farm last week and I knew I
wanted to make something sweet with it. He has always been a
veggie-phobe, so if I introduce it to him in a positive way on the first
try, he's much more likely to try it other ways. I was going to make
zucchini bread, and I realllly wanted something chocolate. Salsa
posted these and I tracked them back to the Mixing Bowl website after
getting a LOT more yield than the recipe stated.
changes, switched out regular chips for the minis, it was what I had and
they made the texture nice. Omitted the nuts due to allergies.
Grated the zucchini on the smallest holes of my grater (and could
whoever stole the thingamajig that holds my shredding blades in my food
processor bowl please give it back? LOL).
I'm pretty sure
they only called these muffins and not cupcakes so that you can eat
them for breakfast and not feel guilty LOL They are chocolate-y and
yummy and I'm going to have to freeze a dozen right now so I stay out of
them! Thanks so much Salsa !

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate -- melted

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Mix sugar,
oil and eggs in mixing bowl and beat at medium speed until mixed. Reduce
the speed to low and add flour mixture, beating constantly just until

chocolate chips. Spoon batter into twelve greased muffin cups. Bake at
350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers comes
out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool

** I filled my cups to the top and got 2 dozen giant muffins and that was without walnuts
