These paleo chocolate zucchini muffins make the perfect healthy snack for people of all ages! They are grain-free, and the perfect way to use up an abundance of zucchini!
These grain-free, paleo chocolate zucchini muffins are perfect for kids – they won’t even realize that there is zucchini wrapped up in the muffin, and they taste like a yummy [lighter] chocolate brownie that’s super moist and flavorful. We stayed away from refined sugar and adjusted our Paleo Zucchini and Chocolate bread recipe to work for muffins.
Have extra zucchini from the farmers market? Us too – and this is the perfect way to use it up.
While I love using my KitchenAid mixer, there isn’t a need for it with these muffins – pull out the food processor and shred the zucchini – gently remove and set on a napkin, then mix the rest of the ingredients in that same food processor before you throw the zucchini back in to blend one last time before pouring into a mini muffin tin.
Within 12-15 minutes, you’ll have the most delicious, healthy, pPaleo zucchini muffins that are perfect for little hands for the start of the school year!
The best part about these muffins is that the zucchini shreds up so fine, that when it’s wrapped in chocolate, it truly tastes like a decadent brownie. As a result, the kids will want to eat them all, not realizing that they are plum full of the green veggie we know as zucchini! Trust me.
My 4 year old ate six of the muffins while I was pouring the batter into the second set of muffins. She had chocolate wrapped around her lips and was in muffin heaven. I bet you didn’t know that muffin heaven was even a place – but it is, and eating 6 muffins at a time might transport you there.
