Chocolate Hazelnut Zucchini Muffins

I've been working on using up last years frozen produce, so today I took out a jar of shredded zucchini to make these Chocolate Hazelnut Zucchini muffins. They are loosely based on this Chocolate Zucchini Cake I made about a million times last year. They were a huge hit on our afternoon canoe trip.

Here's the recipe. Or, rather, the directions since I didn't really measure everything exactly.

1 1/2 c Flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/3 c cocoa (approximately. I just guessed)
3/4 to 1 c sugar (one of those things I don't measure exactly)
1 c shredded zucchini
1/4 c oil
1 egg
a splash of coffee (a tablespoon?)
a splash of vanilla
two handfulls of chocolate chips
1-2 handfulls of chopped hazelnuts

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix. Fold in hazelnuts and chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy


  1. Wow, these look amazing! I'm going to bake a batch for our camping trip. Thanks!! I love how you sneak the veggies in there... hehehe

  2. Hahaha! Sneaky isn't it? Nobody minds ucchini when it's accompanied by chocolate. :) I hope you enjoy them!
