Chocolate chip zucchini muffins -super soft and jam packed with flavor!

One of my favorite summer vegetables is zucchini. Combine it with chocolate and it’s a match made in heaven.Chocolate chip zucchini muffin recipe

I made these chocolate chip zucchini muffins last week and they were so unbelievably good! My kids never would have guessed there was zucchini inside. They would have ate the whole pan if I let them! We ended up freezing half the batch and they have been great for snacks on the go. YUM!


Chocolate chip zucchini muffins


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour or wheat flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips


Pre-heat oven to 350° and fill a cupcake pan with liners. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, zucchini, sugar, oil and vanilla. Then pour into flour mixture and stir until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into the prepared pan until the cups are 2/3rd the way full.
Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean.

After shredding the zucchini make sure to place it in between two paper towels. This will help soak up any extra water. For more tips on cutting a zucchini click here.

  5. I can’t believe I haven’t baked with zucchini yet this year. I need to get on it -with chocolate!

  6. Just made these. I substituted 1 cup of applesauce and 1 tbsp of olive oil for the vegetable to make it a little healthier and they turned out great!

  7. I tried your zucchini chocolate chip muffins. They were great! Thanks!

  8. Wow, 2 cups of sugar, that is a frightening amount for children’s cupcakes.

  9. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Struggled to find a recipe that didn’t have walnuts in them and then I came across your. They turned out so well :) Thanks!

  10. I made this today and it’s DELICIOUS! I don’t have a cupcake/muffin tin so I used a brownie pan lined with foil and cut it into squares even my veggie-phobic husband loves it…I kind of didn’t tell him it has zucchini!
