I hate zucchinis but when they are mixed with chocolate they're tolerable - okay - they're amazing.

The produce section in the grocery store is brimming with zucchinis this time of year and I love getting as many veggies into L'il E as possible so I went on the hunt for a yummy zucchini muffin recipe.

I found one courtesy of Pastry Affair and altered it slightly to accommodate our wheat free diet. They were a hit and L'il E didn't even know he was eating zucchinis.


Wheat-free Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

You'll need:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (1 medium zucchini)
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (or all purpose white flour)
  • 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Then you:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large bowl whisk egg, vegetable oil, brown sugar, and vanilla together.
  3. Stir in the grated zucchini.
  4. Mix in cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Fold in spelt flour and oat flour until just mixed in.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Fill muffin cups to 3/4 full and bake for 25 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
  8. Let muffins cool.
