Here's how you can make this dessert at home:


 350 g of chocolate chips

 ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

 2 finely shredded zucchini

 2 large eggs

 1 teaspoon baking powder

 1 teaspoon of salt

 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

 ½ cup canola or vegetable oil

 1½ cups all-purpose flour

 ½ cup granulated sugar

 ½ cup brown sugar

 ½ teaspoon baking soda


 Place cupcake liners in a 12-cup cupcake or muffin pan and preheat the oven to 350° F. Or, you might use cooking spray.

 In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Blend thoroughly with a whisk until incorporated.

 Use a wooden spoon or spatula to gently stir in the zucchini shreds after adding them.

 Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to a separate bowl. To remove any clumps, mix the ingredients together.

 Put the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and combine them with a spatula or wooden spoon.

 The bag of chocolate chips should be added and combined.

 Evenly distribute the muffin batter among the 12 muffin liners. Each will be virtually completely filled.

 Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted into the center of one of the muffins comes out clean.

 After about 10 minutes, remove the muffins from the pan and place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling. If you prefer, you can also eat these warm; they taste amazing that way too.

Storage Instructions

If you have leftover zucchini chocolate chip muffins, the best way to store them is as follows:

Once totally cooled, put the muffins in an airtight container for short-term storage. For two to three days, keep them at room temperature. Add paper towels to the container to absorb any extra moisture and prevent the muffins from becoming soggy.

Once totally cooled, put the muffins in an airtight container for long-term storage. For 4 to 5 days, place the container in the refrigerator.

You can also freeze these muffins. The muffins can be frozen for up to three months after being placed in a freezer bag. Simply take a muffin out of the freezer and reheat it in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds when you're ready to eat it.
