Cook Time: 25

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil for greasing
  • 3/4 cup zucchini shredded
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin tin with baking cups or grease with coconut oil.
  2. Place the shredded zucchini on a tray lined with a paper towel to drain some of the moisture while you prepare the batter.
  3. Place the eggs, maple syrup, and applesauce in the stand-mixer and mix on medium speed until combined.
  4. Add the coconut flour, cacao powder, arrowroot powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt and mix again on medium speed until combined.
  5. Wrap the paper towel around the zucchini and give it a light squeeze to remove excess moisture and fold it into the batter along with 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips on top. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then on a wire rack until completely cool.
